Netflix is on a roll when it comes to original content.
The company has recently acquired the rights to BoJack Horseman, adding the 12-episode show to a lineup that includes Orange is the New Black, House of Cards and Hemlock Grove. Will Arnett and Aaron Paul voice the animated comedy, which centers on BoJack (Arnett)—a whiskey-loving half human, half horse.
The show follows BoJack as he juggles all the facets of his personal life—dealing with his human best friend Todd (Paul) and Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris), a feline ex-lover.
“Even though he’s been out to pasture, I’ve always admired BoJack for his inimitable style and can-do attitude,” Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer for Netflix, commented to Variety. “I couldn’t be more thrilled that he’s getting off his legendary haunches to join the Internet TV revolution here on Netflix.”
Raphael Bob-Waksberg created BoJack Horseman. Bob-Waksberg will executive produce along with Steven A. Cohen, Noel Bright, Arnett and Paul. The series will make its debut in mid-2014.
