Leslie Jones to Star in Adult Animated Comedy from Warner Bros. Animation

The ‘SNL’ alum and ‘Our Flag Means Death’ star will voice the series’ protagonist, Plastic, but the character is not connected to a certain rumored DC feature.

SNL alum and Our Flag Means Death star Leslie Jones is attached to headline the voice cast of an in-the-works adult animated comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation, Variety reports.

The untitled series’ plot details and writing team have yet to be disclosed, and it currently does not have a home network. Jones will serve as its executive producer, in addition to starring as the main character, Plastic.

Per Variety’s sources, “an individual with knowledge of the project [says] the show is not connected to the female-led take on the DC character Plastic Man that was reportedly in the works as a feature back in 2020."

Jones’ project adds to Warner Bros. Animation’s growing slate of adult animated comedies, which includes the Scooby-Doo origin story, Velma, as well as the DC series Harley Quinn and its upcoming spinoff show centered around Kite Man, Noonan’s. All those series have a streaming home at HBO Max.

Harley Quinn’s third season is scheduled to air this summer, and the first 10 episodes of Noonan’s are currently in development. Mindy Kaling, who voices Velma’s titular crime-solving protagonist, shared a grisly first look at the series during last week’s Warner Bros. Discovery Upfront presentation.
