Introducing Barry & Joe. And Neil DeGrasse Tyson too.

It's no secret that many people in the U.S. (and frankly, across the world) are still in mourning for the days of the Barack Obama/Joe Biden White House.

Even for those of us who don't enjoy getting involved in political conversations, the undeniable charm of the two had a special warmth that you just don't come across often in the hard-line world of world leadership.

It's hard to imagine that Joe and Barack don't miss those days, too. And Joe may just miss them the most...

Well, just about the luckiest day EVER may be just around the corner for all of us, because filmmaker, writer, and commercial director Adam Reid is hard at work developing the pilot for his new concept...

Barry & Joe — The Animated Series!

And we think this may actually be the best news we've heard since prior to Tuesday, November 8, 2016.

According to Reid's Facebook page, he's just launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of this ridiculously exciting project.

"Some of you know I've been working on this little project about time traveling politicians. Well, about 20 minutes ago I launched the Kickstarter. I'd love your help getting early momentum today before we go truly wide. If you can pledge just a few dollars (for some super cool rewards) it would mean a lot to me! We're going to need all the help we can get."

The stated premise for the show sounds, frankly, WAY too good to be true...

"These are the adventures of Barack Obama and Joe Biden bromancing the multiverse as they try and save us from ourselves.

Moments after the inauguration of the forty-fifth President, Barack Obama and his best friend Joe Biden were escorted to a secret lab, run by a team of the world's greatest scientists and occasionally Elon Musk.

Obama and Biden were asked to take off all of their clothes and hold very still in a fetal position until they felt a painful tingling sensation. They would awake to find themselves inside of their younger selves. Driven to find each other, and together, change history for the better.

Their only guide on this journey is Neil deGrasse Tyson. A brilliant scientist from the present who appears in the form of an augmented reality that only they can see and hear.

And so they find themselves leaping throughout their own lifetime. Looking for the best in people... Striving to right injustice wherever they find it. Forever hoping that their next jump in time will take them to a future that’s not scary and f**ked up.

A world which they can proudly call… home."

The Kickstarter page offers several additional details about the project, including excerpts from the script, Reid's thoughts about the time travel genre, and his dream cast.

Plus, there are SO many exciting goodies for those of you out there who choose to contribute to the campaign's $100,000 goal!

Here are just a few examples of what's being offered at various giving levels:

  • $25 or more: "Bromantic Poster! Own the concept artwork in all [its] glory! Your very own 11" x 17" Barry & Joe poster also features the likeness of Neil deGrasse Tyson, Notorious RBG thumb wrestling, Trumps tiny orange hand and much, much more!"
  • $100 or more: Hoodie of Resistance! An insanely stylish Barry & Joe HOODIE to love and cherish! This limited edition hoodie is made from the softest material known to liberals that you'll never want to take off.​

  • $75 or more: "Barry & Joe: The Coloring Book! Daydream your sanity back with your very own Barry & Joe coloring book! Page after page of original illustrations waiting to be colored. A limited edition item featuring our favorite time traveling politicians and 'The Five Fingers of Science'."

  • $10,000 or more: "Producer Credit & Speaking Role! Who are you, Rachel Maddow? For this high-level contribution, you get all the stuff above (poster & hoodie & mug) PLUS a producer credit PLUS a speaking role."

Personally, I am deeply bummed that I don't have an extra $100 lying around here somewhere because a hoodie of resistance sounds dope AF. But such is life...

A quick glance at Reid's bio shows that he's no rookie when it comes to series development:

"I got my start at Comedy Central writing and producing promos for their shows including South Park and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In 2009 I co-founded the production company and agency Bodega Studios where we make content, show opens and commercials for screens of every size. You’ve likely seen Bodega’s work if you consume media pretty much anywhere. We are currently producing the show open to Super Bowl LII and a lot of other unique branded projects."

So there's definitely reason to believe this series will be hit!

Fan adoration of the Obama/Biden bromance is nothing new, of course.

Their memes won the Internet in the Fall of 2016, and Joe's daughter, Ashley Biden, has shared that the humble sidekick himself is a huge fan. She told Moneyish that when she first showed them to the former Vice President of the United States of America, he “sat there for an hour and laughed."

This one, she said, is his personal favorite:

"See? Doesn't this feel right?"
"Joe I'm not leaving my wife for you."
"You said we'd be together f
orev-"
"8 years. I said 8 years."

So while we cannot say for certain, it would appear that at least Mr. Biden would be more than happy to gear up for some sci-fi adventures with his former Commander-in-Chief.

And their wives, former First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Boden, just might get a kick out of it too.

Here's hoping!!
