HBO nabs Duplass brothers' animated show
Animals, an animated series produced by Mark and Jay Duplass, is coming to HBO, the network confirmed to EW Friday.
The two brothers already work together on HBO’s Togetherness, a comedy-drama they co-created. (Mark also stars, alongside Melanie Lynskey and Amanda Peet.) But Animals is a different, well, animal: The show will be made up of shorts featuring less-than-popular critters like pigeons and rats.
Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano created the show, which will feature their voices. Mark, Katie Aselton, and Nick Kroll are also set to voice characters on the show, Variety reports. HBO has already picked up the series for two seasons, and it’s set to debut in 2016.
