Humans: A popular online comic strip is being adapted into a new format for your amusement.
And by that I mean Apple TV Plus is making Nathan W. Pyle strange planet comic into an animated series, with Dan Harmon on board as co-creator and executive producer. It is described as an “adult” animated series, and the first episode will premiere on August 9.
