WWE announced Monday that WWE Studios has entered a co-financing and co-production agreement with Film Roman to produce a new animated adult comedy web series titled “Camp WWE,” via a press release on its corporate web site.

“Camp WWE” will be about what what the WWE superstars were like as kids as they run rampant through summer camp with Vince McMahon playing the role of the camp counselor.

“Film Roman has been involved with some of the most well-known and humorous animated series,” WWE Studios President Michael Luisi said in the release. “They are the perfect partners for WWE Studios to capture our Superstars in a truly unique and fun way.”

Film Roman, the studio behind popular animated shows “The Simpsons” and “King of the Hill,” will produce 13, three-minute webisodes that will be scripted by Mike Benson, who also helped write for “Entourage” and “The Bernie Mac Show.”

“Camp WWE is a new and exciting project with a great creative team for Film Roman to be working on with WWE Studios and we are very bullish on its prospects for success. With a combination of their unique personalities, distinctive characteristics and huge built-in loyal fan base, WWE Superstars make ideal animation subjects in Camp WWE,” said Film Roman General Manager Dana Booton in the release. “We are very pleased to be working with WWE Studios and hope that it will begin a mutually beneficial, long-term business relationship.”
