History

Josh Faure-Brac created the pilot for "SuperNews!" in 2005 which was developed to appear with the launch of the new cable network Current TV. Josh then partnered with Steven K. L. Olson and the two of them created all of the art and animation for the show from August, 2005 to May, 2006.

In May 2006 Dustin McLean joined the team as artist/animator/composer. They created 17 episodes as a three-person team with the help of freelance lip sync and freelance sound design.

Additional team members were eventually hired in quick succession. In April 2007 David Johnston and André Nguyen joined the team as an animators. In June 2007 Martín Carrillo joined the team as sound designer. (He had previously been the freelance sound designer.)

Writer/performers Jason Nash and Jonah Ray have frequently contributed writing and voice acting.
