Royal Crackers used to be king of the snacks but their empire is crumbling. When the family patriarch Theodore Hornsby Sr falls into a "supercoma", the rest of the Hornsbys try to turn it back into the success it once was.

"Like most kids, when I was a young child, I had the stereotypical dream of making an animated television program about a mediocre cracker company and the family of desperate weirdos who run it, said Ruiz. "In this childhood dream, I wanted it to air on linear TV and then stream on an app the following day. Thank you to Adult Swim and HBO Max for making that little pipe dream come true."

The show also stars Maile Flanagan and Fred Tatasciore. Ruiz is also executive producer, with Seth Cohen.  Titmouse are producing the animation.

The first three episodes will air on Adult Swim on April 2, with new episodes following weekly on Sundays at 11.00 PM ET/PT. The series will also stream on HBO Max the following day
