Sometimes a project comes right out of left field that takes you way out of your comfort zone. That's what happened when Hollywood producer Mike Dieffenbach came knocking with an idea for an animated TV show set during the cold war of the 1950s and early 60s. With a cast of characters ranging from the usual hard bitten chief, to idealistic young agents and (sexy) foreign spies. What he needed us to do was craft a world around these characters that up until that point had only lived in the written word, putting faces to descriptions, and a stylebook together that could be taken around to the major networks.
