Super Deluxe was an entertainment company owned by Turner Broadcasting. The company's main output was in online video, television series, and documentaries. Super Deluxe was headquartered in downtown Los Angeles.
Turner Broadcasting System announced the launch of Super Deluxe, a digital comedy website, in October 2006. Super Deluxe was first launched on January 17, 2007 and featured digital shorts by comedians including Bob Odenkirk, Maria Bamford, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. The website was folded into Adult Swim.com on May 7, 2008.
Super Deluxe was relaunched as a new entity in late 2015. The "new" Super Deluxe was a separate entity from its original incarnation, only connected by name. The network features short form videos including comedic shorts, political satire, animation, and music videos. The Super Deluxe production studio focuses on television series and feature films.
Among these videos are Donald Trump related videos by Vic Berger, a frequent collaborator for the comedy duo Tim & Eric. Each of these videos remixes various debate appearances with air horns and crowds chanting Trump's name. During both the 2016 Republican National Convention and the 2016 Democratic National Convention, both Berger and Tim Heidecker covered the events on the Super Deluxe channel. Berger also created an "Oscar bait" version of the 2015 film Straight Outta Compton for Super Deluxe.
In 2017, Vicente Fox, the former President of Mexico, appeared in a series of videos on the channel. In these videos, Fox criticized Trump on a variety of issues including his proposal to build a wall between America and Mexico and his Cinco de Mayo taco bowl tweet.
In September 2018, it was announced that Super Deluxe, alongside Blink Industries and Conaco, would be producing new episodes of the British web series, Don't Hug Me I'm Scared.
On October 19, 2018, Turner Entertainment announced that it would be shutting down Super Deluxe, citing duplication with other WarnerMedia lines of business.
On August 9, 2019, American entertainment company Fullscreen acquired the rights to Super Deluxe and has rebranded the company as Tatered, focusing on similar content as its predecessor. The first Tatered video was uploaded on August 26, 2019, announcing the rebrand and future content.
Various Super Deluxe programs have featured celebrities such as Billie Eilish, Maria Bamford, Richard Belzer, Norm MacDonald, Bob Odenkirk, Tim & Eric, Chelsea Peretti, Nick Swardson, Nathan Fielder, Oliver Tree, Toby Radloff, and Mike Krol.
All listed video series from December 16, 2008. Many of these series have made their way to individual YouTube channels, acquired by other networks, or evolved into larger shows.
