Friends Griffin and Kalil teamed up earlier this year to launch the Los Angles-based production company Mortal Media, which already has set up a sequel to the Disney 1991 movie The Rocketeer. In TV, Griffin executive produces Okies of Bel Air, an animated comedy presentation for Fox, written by writer-comedian Sean O’Connor, which borrows some elements from Griffin’s life.

Matthew and Daniel Libman’s  credits also include Metalocalypse, Bad Teacher, and Marry Me. The duo are repped by UTA and attorney Ken Richman. Mortal Media is repped by UTA for TV.
