I’m not sure what to make of HBO upcoming animated comedy series. There are talking animals mostly pets or animals you encounter in the urban setting. Cynicism about daily lives. It’s voice by familiar comedians/actors.
Here’s the official tag line: An animated comedy series from co-creators Phil Matarese & Mike Luciano and produced by the Duplass Brothers, ANIMALS. focuses on the downtrodden creatures native to planet Earth’s least habitable environment: New York City. Whether it’s lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bed bugs steeped in midlife crisis, the existential woes of non-human urbanites prove startlingly similar to our own.
The series premiere February 5th. Check out the trailer and let me know what you think.
