‘BoJack Horseman’ Co-Creators To Launch ‘Undone’ On Amazon | TV News
In a shrewd move, Amazon has nabbed BoJack Horseman co-creators Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Kate Purdy from streaming rival Netflix and given a straight-to-series order for a brand new animated series from the duo, titled Undone.
The show is reportedly a dramedy that explores the elastic nature of reality through its title character, Alma. After getting into a car accident, Alma realises she has a new relationship with time and uses this newfound ability to find out the truth about her father’s death. Rosa Salazar (Chips) and Angelique Cabral (Life In Pieces) have already been cast.
Sharon Yguado, head of scripted series at Amazon Studios remarked: “We’re delighted to greenlight our first animated half-hour series. Kate and Raphael are dynamic and creative forces, and I know they will create an amazing series for us. I can’t wait for our customers to see it in 2019”, while co-creator Purdy added that her and Bob-Waksberg were:
“grateful to Amazon Studios for the opportunity to tell Alma’s story and follow her as she seeks to find a deeper meaning to her existence”.
The show certainly sounds sophisticated and interesting. BoJack Horseman is one of Netflix’s most acclaimed shows, so for Amazon to grab the minds behind such a funny, smart, sad show for their first animated series is a clever move. Expect a whirlwind of beautiful animation and heavy existential themes when Undone eventually premieres on Amazon Prime in 2019.
