New animated comedy is set in a mildly apocalyptic near-future Florida funeral home; the coming-of-age story is about second chances, death, and family, premiering September 19.
Teenage Euthanasia, Adult Swim’s newest coming-of-all-ages comedy series about death, family, and accidental resurrection, premieres Sunday, September 19 at Midnight ET/PT. And now, we have a trailer!
Set in a mildly apocalyptic near-future inland Florida, Teenage Euthanasia centers around the Fantasy family and their inland Florida funeral home, Tender Endings. The cast of characters include recently undead Trophy Fantasy (voiced by Maria Bamford); her teenage daughter, Euthanasia "Annie" Fantasy (voiced by Jo Firestone); Annie's Oedipus-complex-stricken Uncle Pete (voiced by Tim Robinson); and Annie's "old country" immigrant grandmother Baba (voiced by Bebe Neuwirth).
As a teen mom, Trophy ran away from home, leaving Annie behind to be raised by her Baba and Uncle Pete. Fifteen years later, Trophy finally returns to Tender Endings... as a corpse, for burial. But when a bolt of lightning strikes Baba's homemade embalming fluid, and one of Annie's tears magically bring Trophy back from the dead, Trophy finds herself a resurrected woman with a second chance at unplanned parenthood (and a variety of quasi-useful death powers).
It's an animated Fantasy Resurrection!
The half-hour animated series is co-created by Alissa Nutting, and Emmy-nominated producer, Alyson Levy (The Shivering Truth). Teenage Euthanasia is produced by PFFR and animated by Augenblick Studios. Executive producers include Lisa M. Thomas, Vernon Chatman, and John Lee, with Scott Adsit as co-executive producer.
