Netflix has handed out a 10 episode straight-to-series order to Big Mouth, an animated comedy series from real-life best friends Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg about the adventures of teenagers going through puberty, TVWise has learned.
“There are few things that keep me up at night….Nick Kroll’s adventures in puberty is one of them, so we greenlit this series with very few questions asked,” said Cindy Holland, Vice-President of Original Content for Netflix.
John Mulaney (Mulaney) and Nick Kroll (The League) will voice lead characters Andrew and Nick. Other cast members include Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids), Jason Mantzoukas (The League), Jordan Peele (Key & Peele), Fred Armisen (Documentary Now!), Jenny Slate (Lady Dynamite) and Jessi Klein (Inside Amy Schumer).
Big Mouth was created by Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett and is being produced in-house by Netflix Originals. The executive producers are Kroll, Goldberg, Levin and Flackett. The series will premiere globally on Netflix in 2017.
“Andrew and I have been best friends since 1st grade, so this show is over 30 years in the making. I can’t wait to tell all the stories that make up the glorious nightmare of puberty,” added series co-creator and star Nick Kroll.
