Icebox.com will close its doors Friday, says The Hollywood Reporter, over the site’s failure to close a $10 million round of funding. The site offered various animated series, including the gay-themed Queer Duck (featuring the voices of Jim J. Bullock and RuPaul), Poker Night (which featured the voice of out Frasier costar Dan Butler), and the controversial Mr. Wong. Two Icebox properties are being developed for television—Showtime acquired Starship Regulars, and Fox is making a pilot of Zombie College, both of which will be remade as live-action shows.
