Netflix’s ‘BoJack Horseman’ Trailer: Will Arnett and Aaron Paul Horse Around in New Animated Comedy
With Netflix about to unveil ‘Orange Is the New Black‘ season 2 this Friday, the streaming service debuted a first look at one of its other original series coming up. Animated comedy ‘BoJack Horseman’ gave life to its first full trailer, starring the likes of ‘Arrested Development”s Will Arnett, ‘Breaking Bad”s Aaron Paul, and even ‘Community‘ alum Alison Brie, but is it any good?
Created by comedian and writer Raphael Bob-Waksberg, the 12-episode original series follows whiskey-drinking talking horse BoJack (Arnett), who deals with personal crises after the heyday of his 1990s family sitcom ‘Horsin’ Around.’ Bojack also contends with his human sidekick Todd (Paul) and feline agent and ex-lover Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris).
Bob-Waksberg, Steven A. Cohen and Noel Bright will executive produce with Arnett and Paul, while BoJack himself was designed by graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt. The trailer brings out a few reasonably good laughs, but time will tell if ‘BoJack’ conjures the same prestige its cast would suggest.
Well, what do you think? Check out the first ‘BoJack Horseman’ trailer above, and tell us in the comments what you make of Netflix’s latest offering? Will you take in the binge when all episodes debut August 22?
