Bonus Trivia

.

"When his agents come to visit his Atlanta production studio, Floyd County Productions, he takes them to the shooting range, because 'it’s sort of like bowling, but with guns.'" -- Writers Guild of America, http://www.wga.org/content/default.aspx?id=4517

.

Lost a job creating behind the scenes content for Showtime when creative partner Matt Thompson broke both their client's legs in a snowmobiling accident during a location shoot near Vancouver, BC.

"I was literally walking out the door with a suitcase to go live in Europe for the summer and [Cartoon Network executive vice-president] Mike Lazzo called. I was like, "Should I answer the phone? I'm going to miss my plane." And he's like, "Hey, we want to make Sealab!" And then he told us they were doing Adult Swim, which we didn't know about. So it was just dumb luck." -- GQ 02/17/2010 http://www.gq.com/blogs/the-q/2010/02/theft-super-spies-run-ins-with-carrot-top-meet-the-genius-behind-archer.html#ixzz2crhZp1v8

Reed and Thompson called their first production company 70/30 Productions after the pair's division of labor: Reed did 70% of the writing and 30% of the producing, and Thompson vice versa.

.

Reed and Thompson's second production company, Floyd County Productions, is named after the northwest Georgia county where the small city of Rome is located.

"The statue of limitations has gotta be up on that, right? I mean, literally nobody had seen it in, like, ever. And they weren't going to air it, because it was a really boring cartoon." -- on stealing the master tapes of "Sealab 2020" to create "Sealab 2021" -- GQ 02/17/2010 http://www.gq.com/blogs/the-q/2010/02/theft-super-spies-run-ins-with-carrot-top-meet-the-genius-behind-archer.html#ixzz2crhZp1v8 Read More http://www.gq.com/blogs/the-q/2010/02/theft-super-spies-run-ins-with-carrot-top-meet-the-genius-behind-archer.html#ixzz2cvGKH2sT

"Frisky Dingo" was originally called "Whiskey Tango" after the phonetic alphabet letters for W and T. A band had already claimed the name, and Reed and Thompson jokingly changed the name to the nonsensical "Frisky Dingo," which stuck.
