HBO is premiering Animals., the new animated series from Mark and Jay Duplass, on Friday, February 5th at 11:30PM ET/PT.
Created by advertising creatives Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano and produced by Duplass Brothers Television, Animals. focuses on the downtrodden creatures native to Earth’s least-habitable environment: New York City. Whether it’s lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bedbugs in the midst of a midlife crisis, the awkward small talk, moral ambiguity and existential woes of non-human urbanites prove startlingly similar to our own.
Matarese and Luciano voice many of the characters in the show, joined by guest voices Katie Aselton, Rob Corddry, Mark Duplass, Nick Kroll, Jason Mantzoukas, Molly Shannon and more.
The first two episodes made their world premiere at Sundance 2015, leading to a two-season pickup from HBO. The animation is produced at Starburns Industries, the studio behind Adult Swim’s hit series, Rick and Morty, and Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson’s stop-motion feature, Anomalisa.
