THE STORY OF B.D.(Bad Drone)
From some of the creative talent behind American Dad, The Simpsons, Phineas and Ferb, Rick and Morty, Disney, MARVEL, Warner Bros, FOX Nickelodeon, adult-swim and more comes BAD DRONE, aka BD !
BD always means well but trouble just seems to follow BD and Arnold around on a daily basis! BD communicates via his camera and through WI-FI. He transmits Audio and video, everything B.D. sees and hears, his point-of-view to any computer, cell phone tablet of his choosing. Now attributed to the unconventional way that B.D. was conceived, mainly Arnolds misappropriation of household family items like his sister Roxy's old cellphone, Mom's old laptop etc., B.D. at times has some uncontrollable moments that spoof some of the greatest non sentients ever to grace the screen. Take R2D2 for example, yep BD has a projector too except at the worse possible moment he's uncontrollably projecting Roxy's selfies of her itsy bitsy lingerie performance (which must have been stored on her old iPhone and embedded in BD's circuits)on the wall of Arnolds school classroom!
B.D.'s seemingly endless life source came from a burst of plasma when he was targeted flying over a secret high tech facility, Crump Industries. Evil Melon Crump dispatched his drone CYCOPS to do the dirty work. Battery drained he crashes into a nearby power line where he received an additional dose of high voltage and a lightning strike! Voila Bad Drone is alive! Continually evolving by the millisecond you never know what to expect in terms of his abilities, his powers, his emotions!!

Meet Arnold, a precocious 12 year old and creator of BD. He built his very own drone in school using a few extra parts from home. Arnold is just as surprised as we are as he watches his seemingly normal mindless drone go rogue and turn into something altogether different. There begins the first of many adventures about to unfold for the newly sentient being now known as BD and his reluctant and astounded owner.
BAD DRONE PHILOSOPHY
Accidents happen and its how we deal with things that matters.
We have created a rich universe centered around the adventures of a previously inanimate representation of our current culture. Drones are omnipresent in today's world. They stand as a proxy for society's questions around an assortment of Orwellian issues ranging from privacy through the promise and dread of the role technology plays in our lives. What a fantastic neck-deep arena for comedy and satire! Lessons will be learned on the bumpy journey as we follow the misfit chronicles of Bad Drone and his adopted family.

Why a Drone?
They’re EVERYWHERE. It’s hard to read a newspaper or watch a current events program without running across some reference to Drones. They are culturally ‘UP’ right now and will be for the next several years. They are machines employed in multiple applications both helpful and controversial around the world:
They’re deployment, especially for military or homeland security, are subject to constant debate on their ethical use or misuse. They provide a rich palette to explore with comedy.
An anthropomorphic use of a Drone provides a great palette for exploring all of these issues. Plus, it’s just funny!
