Netflix is about to expand its repertoire of original content even further with BoJack Horseman, a dark animated comedy that will premiere in mid-2014. Similar to House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, all 12 episodes of the first season will be released simultaneously.
It tells the story of Bojack, voiced by Arrested Development star Will Arnett, a horse that has fallen on hard times after starring in a 90’s sitcom called ‘Horsin Around’. The series tracks his adventures with human sidekick Todd, voiced by Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul, and likely misfortunes, as he tries to find stardom once more.
Undoubtedly, it’s a pretty off-the-wall concept, but it does highlight Netflix’s willingness to experiment with new, imaginative ideas.
