Will Arnett and Aaron Paul are saddling up for a new Netflix Original series, Bojack Horseman.
The darkly hilarious tale of a washed-up TV horse, the show will run for 12 episodes and can be summed up in five promising words: Will Arnett plays the horse.
Legendary star of the 1990’s family favorite situation comedy “Horsin’ Around,” Bojack 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.
“BoJack Horseman is a brutally funny and unique take on what can happen after pop stardom,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “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.”
The series is created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg and produced by Michael Eisner’s Tornante Company.
“We are thrilled to bring BoJack Horseman’s singular humor to Netflix, one of the most distinctive and exciting distribution networks in entertainment today,” said Eisner. “We are especially proud to be producing Netlix’s first original adult animation series.”
The show is coming exclusively to all Netflix territories in mid-2014.
