Rooster Teeth: Entertainment System (also abbreviated as RT-ES, RTES or #RTES) was a live action FIRST Member exclusive sketch comedy TV Web series on The Rooster Teeth Website hosted by Lazer Team co-star and Rooster Teeth recurring guest star Colton Dunn. The show ran for six episodes before being put on hiatus, and then unofficially cancelled in early November 2015.
On September 16, 2015, Rooster Teeth dropped and released the trailer for the new show titled "Rooster Teeth Entertainment System," which premiered on September 27, 2015, and to be hosted by actor Colton Dunn.
The trailer for RT-ES claimed the show would be about “comedy, music, games, life,” because “this is Colton Dunn.” RT-ES was one of the most recent sponsors-only pieces of content Rooster Teeth had produced, in addition to the Let’s Play Live documentary.
Dunn had appeared in Rooster Teeth’s first feature film, Lazer Team, which premiered 3 days before RT-ES. Dunn has made guest appearances in various other productions from the company, like RT Shorts and A Million Dollars But… series. Dunn has also participated in several Let’s Plays with RT’s gaming branch Achievement Hunter.
The show featured comedy sketches, music and games along with a host of special guests from Rooster Teeth and online personalities and more from the "hilarious mind" of Colton Dunn. The show was produced in Los Angeles, California and is hosted and created by Colton Dunn.
Hiatus and cancellation Edit
In a Sponsor-Only video, Burnie Burns stated that RT-ES would be put on hiatus, saying "occasionally we make some missteps." He elaborated by saying Rooster Teeth would be looking at all the audience feedback and apply it to the show in the future. However, on November 6, 2015, Colton made a deleted tweet stating "Bummerz. No more #RTES.". In response, Rooster Teeth tweeted that RT-ES would be put on hiatus. The main reason for its cancellation is said to have come from negative reviews and poor feedback from the audience.
