Series by ‘Brickleberry’ creators about a really bad small-town police department adds to streaming platform’s growing animated adult comedy programming block.
Netflix has announced that Paradise P.D., the streaming service’s new animated comedy for adults, will premiere 10 half-hour episodes this coming August 31. From Brickleberry creators Waco O’Guin and Roger Black, Paradise P.D. is an outrageous animated comedy about a backwater, Southern-fried, small-town police department. They’re bad cops. Not bad like no nonsense. Not bad like cool. Bad like shitty. Paradise PD: They’re the worst responders.
The series adds to the streaming service’s growing adult animation slate, which includes BoJack Horseman, Big Mouth, Matt Groening’s Disenchantment, which premieres August 17, and Lisa Hanawalt’s Tuca & Bertie, which has yet to announce a launch date.
The voice cast includes Dana Snyder (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Squidbillies), Cedric Yarbrough (Speechless), Dave Herman (Brickleberry, Bob’s Burgers), Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), Sarah Chalke (Roseanne, Scrubs, Rick & Morty) and Kyle Kinane (The Standups).
The series is produced by Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment and Bento Box Animation for Netflix.
Dan Sarto is Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Animation World Network.
