Love Death + Robots has been in development since the late 2000s. It hails from David Fincher (Mindhunter) and Tim Miller (Deadpool), along with Jennifer Miller and Joshua Donen, who are all executive producing.
Miller, who previously was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film for the 2004 animated short Gopher Broke, returned to his animation roots with the series, utilizing his animation company Blur Studio, while the team also consisted of filmmakers from around the world and featured various animation styles including traditional 2D and photorealistic CGI.
