Ben Hoffman created the series and served as executive producer in addition to voicing the character Time Bomb. Phil Lord and Chris Miller also executive produced along with Johnson and Seth Cohen. 20th Television was the studio, with Bento Box Entertainment serving as the animation house.
The show received generally poor reviews upon its release, holding a 14% critical approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In her review for Variety, Caroline Framke wrote “Because for as wild as ‘Hoops’ can be, it just doesn’t have much in the way of punchlines at all. Johnson’s good, but he’s not good enough to sell yet another one of Ben’s meltdowns as even vaguely interesting, let alone funny.
Netflix has a number of adult animated shows on its current slate, including “Big Mouth,” “Disenchantment,” “F Is for Family,” and upcoming shows like “Agent King” and “Entergalactic.”
