‘DeadEndia’ horror-comedy graphic novels author/creator Hamish Steele brings his spooky brand of humor to the new 2D animated series.
Netflix has released a trailer for its new 2D animated series, Dead End: Paranormal Park, based on Hamish Steele’s horror-comedy graphic novels “DeadEndia” and web short Dead End. The show premieres June 16.
The author’s graphic novels have been lauded for capturing the early adulthood growing pains of characters with a wide variety of identities and experiences including Barney, a transgender teen, and neurodiverse Norma.
The series follows the adventures of Barney, Norma, and magical-talking-dog Pugsley, as they balance their summer jobs at the local theme park haunted house while battling the totally real supernatural forces that dwell within it. Together with their guide to the underworld multiplane, a sardonic thousand-year-old demon named Courtney, they'll face zombie mascots, demonic game show hosts, sleep-sucking witches, and the scariest thing of all: their first crushes!
The voice cast features Zach Barack; Kody Kavitha; Emily Osment; Alex Brightman; Clinton Leupp a.k.a. Miss Coco Peru; Kenny Tran; and Kathreen Khavari. Guest stars will include Alan Cumming; Angelica Ross; C Nelson; Kemah Bob; MJ Roridguez; Patrick Stump; Sam Jay; Taylor "Effy" Gibson; Tom Lenk, and Z Infante. A special musical episode will feature songs written by Stump.
Steele is creator, executive produced and showrunner. The production studio is Blink Industries.
