Dangerfield Entertainment

Rodney’s humor is as timeless as human relationships and the struggle for everyman to find his place in the sun, only to find a bird flying overhead.  Having solidified his place in history with a body of work ranging from stand-up to film, music to animation and production, our obligation is to ensure the survival of his legacy and work.  His iconic red tie is displayed at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. where it will stand forever, thus we intend to maintain his connection to the world.  Concurrently, we are also going to introduce the public to a very private side of Rodney, the man who struggled with depression, was able to channel his demons into a very successful career, a contributor to our culture, and the philosopher.

Rodney’s new website is being developed by Shine United.  It will be launched in early October. The site will have an innovative interface and navigation that will provide intuitive and engaging experiences on both desktop and mobile devices.  From movies & TV commercials, to stand-up & comedy albums, it will be teeming with video clips.  The new website will provide visitors with an expansive perspective on the breadth of Rodney’s career and his accomplishments.  Visitors will be able to read notes written in Rodney’s own hand and there will be hidden “Easter Eggs” for fans to discover throughout the site, which will provide visitors with a glimpse into Rodney’s daily life.

“The Dangerfield” is a new, 3D stereoscopic Internet game, developed by the SXSW (South by Southwest) and Webby award-winning independent game developers, the Bell Brothers.  It will be launched in three phases beginning later this year.  3D stereoscopic gameplay achieves a full 3d effect without special glasses or hardware.
