Adult Swim has ordered nine episodes of Titan Maximum, a new comedy series from the creative team behind its hit Robot Chicken; it's a stop-motion animation series about robots, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Titan will launch in September and was created by Robot co-head writer/producer Tom Root and co-creator/executive producer Matthew Senreich.

Robot co-creator/exec producer Seth Green will voice the show's villain and executive-produce with Root and Senreich.

The voice cast of the series also includes Robot players Breckin Meyer, Rachael Leigh Cook, Dan Milano and Eden Espinosa.

Titan is set 100 years in the future, when Saturn's moon Titan is defended by an elite squadron of young, brash pilots whose spaceships combine to form the giant robot Titan Maximum. Because of budget cuts, the team has been disbanded but must hastily reassemble when a former team member turns rogue and tries to conquer the solar system.

With Titan, the creators pay homage to the 1980s Japanese animated cartoons.

Unlike Robot Chicken, which is a sketch series, Titan has a permanent set of characters and continuous storylines.
