Netflix has announced that their new animated series BoJack Horseman will premiere in all territories where the streaming service has a presence on Friday August 22nd.
Created by Bob-Waksberg, BoJack Horseman tells the story of BoJack (Will Arnett), the legendary star of the 1990’s family favorite situation comedy “Horsin’ Around” who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. Now, with the help of his human sidekick Todd (Aaron Paul) and his feline agent and ex-paramour Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris), BoJack is primed to again make his mark on the world of entertainment. The series is produced by Michael Eisner’s Tornante Company and features the voices of Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Aaron Paul, Alison Brie and Paul F. Tompkins.
Speaking at the time the series was commissioned, back in December 2013, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said: “BoJack Horseman is a brutally funny and unique take on what can happen after pop stardom. Raphael has created an amazing set of characters voiced by some of the best comics and actors in the world. We’re delighted to be partnering with Michael Eisner in delivering BoJack exclusively to Netflix members around the world.”
