Austin, Texas – September 15, 2020 – Today to kick off the virtual RTX at Home, WarnerMedia’s pioneering media and entertainment company Rooster Teeth hosted “FIRST Night”, a preview night full of exclusive reveals and announcements including: exclusive footage from Red vs Blue: Zero, two new show announcements: Grudge Night and Dead Little Roosters, and announced Rooster Teeth is launching into fans’ living rooms this fall on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and updated Xbox One and Apple TV apps.

Longtime Rooster Teeth writer and director Josh Flanagan appeared with Achievement Hunter cast member Fiona Nova to give an exclusive first look at Dead Little Roosters, a spiritual successor to Rooster Teeth’s murder mystery series 11 Little Roosters.

Watch a trailer for the apps here! Further announcements regarding the apps including launch dates will be revealed at a later date. 

 

Here is a detailed roundup of announcements from RTX at Home FIRST Night: 

 

  • Rooster Teeth’s newest show Grudge Night premieres October 7 exclusively for Rooster Teeth FIRST members. Good-natured competition has always thrived amongst the teams at Rooster Teeth, but in the background certain grudges have always simmered. In Grudge Night, these long standing grudges are settled over video game matches, tournament style. 

 

  • Dead Little Roosters is coming soon to Rooster Teeth. A spiritual successor to 11 Little Roosters, Dead Little Roosters features a new cast of characters and is led by showrunner Josh Flanagan (11 Little Roosters, Day 5). A night of merriment turns macabre when a group of Rooster Teeth talent find themselves trapped in a mansion with a murderer in this hilariously interactive whodunnit.

 

  • Red vs. Blue: Zero premieres October 19. Red vs. Blue: Zero is written and directed by first-time showrunner Torrian Crawford (Death Battle). In Red vs. Blue Zero, a mysterious syndicate leader known only as Zero seeks an Ultimate Power, and a ragtag team of heroes and misfits called the SHATTER SQUAD must work together to save the galaxy.
