The first-time showrunner and ‘Dear Basketball’ production designer’s new animated show follows the adventures of six-year-old Hank, a dirt-covered kid, and his best pal, a giant honking trash truck.
Netflix has just released the official trailer from their new CG animated preschool series, Trash Truck, from first-time showrunner Max Keane, the production designer on his father Glen Keane’s Oscar-winning animated short, Dear Basketball. The series follows Hank, a free-range, dirt-covered 6-year-old boy with a big imagination and an even bigger best pal… a giant honking, snorting trash truck. From learning to fly, to going to the dentist, there is no adventure too big or too small for these two best friends.
The 12-episode first season premieres November 10 on the streaming giant; created by Max Keane, the series is executive produced by Max Keane, Glen Keane (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast), and Gennie Rim (Dear Basketball). Glen Keane’s highly anticipated CG animated feature film, Over the Moon, will premiere on Netflix this coming Friday, October 23; Rim, along with Pearl Studios’ Peilin Chou, serve as producers.

The voice cast features Brian Baumgartner (The Office) as Walter, Glen Keane as Grandpa / Trash Truck, Max Keane as Dad, Henry Keane as Hank, Megan Keane as Mom, Olive Keane as Olive, Lucas Neff as Donny, and Jackie Loeb as Miss Mona.
