Adult Animated Comedy ‘Ten Year Old Tom’ Streaming Sept. 30 on HBO Max

The Max Original adult animated comedy series “Ten Year Old Tom” will debut Sept. 30 on HBO Max.

The series is created and written by Steve Dildarian (“The Life & Times of Tim”), who will executive produce with TV animation veteran Nick Weidenfeld (“The Boondocks,” “Rick & Morty”). Dildarian plays the lead character Tom alongside a cast that includes Byron Bowers, Todd Glass, Gillian Jacobs, Edi Patterson and John Malkovich with guest appearances by David Duchovny, Jennifer Coolidge, Natasha Lyonne, Mark Proksch, Tim Robinson, George Wallace and more.

“Steve Dildarian is a tremendous talent and a wonderful collaborator,” Billy Wee, SVP of comedy and animation at HBO Max, said in a statement. “We can’t wait for comedy fans everywhere to experience the absurd brilliance of ‘Ten Year Old Tom.'”

“I wanted to write a show about a kid who’s trying to make sense of the world around him, but to do it in a way that doesn’t pull punches,” Dildarian said in a statement. “HBO Max is the perfect home for a show like that, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity.”

“Ten Year Old Tom” follows the misadventures of an average kid as he contends with questionable guidance from the well-meaning grownups around him. Being a kid is hard enough for Tom, but when bad influences seem to lurk around every corner — from litigious parents and drug dealing bus drivers to school administrators who want to sleep with his mom — it’s downright impossible. While the adults in Tom’s life certainly mean well, they just can’t manage to lead by example.

‘Loki’ Top Show in Nearly Every Territory, According to New Global Streaming Original Chart

Disney+’s “Loki” was the top original streaming show in nearly every territory tracked June 7-20 in a global demand chart created under a new data agreement.

The new bi-monthly report, the Global Intelligence Tracker, is a collaboration between Whip Media and the Entertainment Globalization Association (EGA). The chart ranks the most viewed streaming original television series among U.S. viewers and highlights their corresponding performance in other key global streaming markets, showcasing how viewing varies by territory.

The EGA was founded in 2020 by Chris Fetner, formerly Netflix’s global director of postproduction partnerships and integrations.

The report is compiled utilizing Whip Media’s proprietary global panel of consumers who report what programs they follow and watch and, further, how they feel about those shows. The panel is made up of 17 million viewers in more than 170 countries and provides data on more than 4.5 million movie and TV episodes on 1,100 global platforms.

“We know there is a global audience for content but as streaming platforms expand internationally, a barrier to entry still exists for many of their TV shows and localization has become more important than ever,” Chris Fetner, EGA managing director, said in a statement. “The Global Intelligence Tracker is the first report of its kind to identify where these barriers exist and provide actionable data to improve viewership. We’re excited to partner with Whip Media to provide this unique data to our members to help them share great stories around the world.”

“We’re thrilled to be working with Chris and the impressive membership of the EGA,” Carol Hanley, president of Whip Media, said in a statement. “By leveraging Whip Media’s extensive insights on how consumers watch and engage with programming on a country level, together we’re providing EGA members a new tool that will allow them to make smarter localization and licensing decisions for their content. The data will not only help them evaluate the demand for their content on a global basis but also see the demand for competitive content.”

At launch, the Global Intelligence Tracker will provide a list of the top 10 most viewed original TV series on leading U.S. streaming platforms and benchmark their viewership against countries in Eastern and Western Europe and Latin America, with additional markets coming soon. The Global Intelligence Tracker is available on the EGA and Whip Media websites and will be distributed through the EGA member newsletter.
