The Pole -SYFY
One of the most successful drives on SYFY’s lineup is their original animated series. The channel announced two more animated originals The Pole and The Summoner set to premiere on Wednesday, March 17.
The two new animated shows will premiere back-to-back for the late-night animation block starting at 11:15 p.m. ET/PT with The Pole and then followed by The Summoner.
The Pole is after a scandal involving “Saint” Nick (Bobby Moynihan) rocks the holly jolly foundations of the North Pole, all hell breaks loose as the future of Christmas turns into a twisted power struggle for the Red Suit. As Nick, the 20th to wear the Suit struggles with the age-old question of naughty vs. nice, his wife Mrs. Claus, aka Gretchen (Jillian Bell), works to keep the political machine (toy production) afloat. It isn’t easy as they juggle the factory elves, including Nick’s head elf Matilda (Nicole Byer) and political activist Helenor (Sasheer Zamata), as well as parenting two sons – Nick’s mini-me Harry (Sungwon Cho) and the crown prince, Jack (Timothy Simons), who’s not only next in line for the Suit but also looking to rebrand it. Reporting on all the drama at the Pole? Cocoa (Colin Jost), host of “Morning Cocoa,” the North Pole news program.
