We are pleased to bring you the exclusive debut of some new key art for Netflix’s upcoming original serialized animated series, BoJack Horseman. We shared the trailer with you a few weeks back, and unfortunately it’ll still be a few more weeks before the new series appears on Netflix. In the meantime, we can share this new image with you from the animated comedy that features Will Arnett voicing the title character, a legendary 90s sitcom star who is attempting to mount his career comeback. Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, Aaron Paul, Paul F. Tompkins, and more special guests lend their vocal talents to the show’s supporting characters.
Season one of BoJack Horseman premieres with twelve episodes only on Netflix on Friday, August 22nd at 12:01 AM PT. Hit the jump for our exclusive Bojack Horseman poster debut, and more on the show’s characters.
Before we share our exclusive poster debut with you, here’s a bit more on the characters of BoJack Horseman and the actors who voice them:
- Will Arnett as BoJack Horseman (horse) – star of the ’90s family sitcom “Horsin’ Around,” now he’s a washed up misanthrope who holes up in his gorgeous Hollywood Hills bachelor pad, complains about everything, and liberally abuses any substance he can get his hands on. Simultaneously self-loathing and self-aggrandizing, BoJack engages the world with a prickliness that’s a clear front for a well of neuroses.
- Aaron Paul as Todd (human) – BoJack’s best friend and permanent houseguest. A happy-go-lucky twenty-something who sleeps on BoJack’s couch, Todd is the cheerful yin to BoJack’s acerbic yang. Laid-back and unflappable, Todd happily takes the abuse of BoJack (and the world at large) and scurries back for more. An apparent magnet for crazy circumstance, Todd always finds new ways to get himself in trouble, but somehow, just as inexplicably, always finds a way back out.
- Amy Sedaris as Princess Carolyn (cat) – BoJack’s agent and on-again off-again girlfriend/employee-with-
benefits. Princess Carolyn (not actually a princess) is constantly breaking up with BoJack because of his negative attitude and inability to commit. However, she continues to work for him, because she takes pride in her ability to separate her personal life from her professional life. Princess Carolyn is alternatively cheerful and cutting, and she seamlessly switches between her two modes. Being an agent, she is very big on status and keeping up appearances. She can be superficial, vain, and flighty, but she’s a paragon of groundedness and responsibility compared to BoJack.
- Alison Brie as Diane (human) – a ghostwriter hired to help BoJack write his memoir. Upbeat, but not cloyingly so, with a dry sense of humor and an ugly duckling past, Diane rarely challenges others directly, instead opting to give them enough rope to hang themselves. A Serious Writer who somehow landed in the world of entertainment journalism, she tries to keep a cool head amidst all the craziness of Hollywood, but sometimes her impulsiveness gets the better of her. Used to being the smartest person in the room, Diane always knows she’s right, even when she isn’t (but usually she is).
- Paul F. Tompkins as Mr. Peanutbutter (dog) – a dashing golden retriever and former star of “Mr. Peanutbutter’s House,” a mid-90s sitcom in which he played a wisecracking dog raising three precocious human children, a premise BoJack dismisses as ludicrous and hackneyed. Mr. Peanutbutter is essentially a less miserable/more deluded version of BoJack, relentlessly positive and free of neuroses and shame. Comfortable being a C-list sitcom actor and an A-list schmoozer fifteen years past his prime, Mr. Peanutbutter can turn any situation into a good time.
And now that I’ve teased you long enough about it, here’s our exclusive debut for the key art for the Netflix original Bojack Horseman:
