Netflix has announced that they will expand their animation sector and will have a new stand alone show from the production team who has brought you the critically-acclaimed animated series Bojack Horseman. Tuca and Bertie is the new comedy coming out. Netflix has placed a 10-episode order for the show's first season.
Tuca and Bertie is a comedy about the friendship between two 30-year-old bird women who live in the same apartment building. Tiffany Haddish, comedian and actress known for her part as Diana in Girls Trip, is confirmed as the part of Tuca, a cocky, care-free toucan. There has not been a confirmation for a voice actress to portray the anxious, daydreaming songbird, Bertie yet but, we are anxiously anticipating who will co-star the amazingly funny Tiffany Haddish.
According to Variety, Lisa Hanawalt, the creator, will also serve as the executive producer. She is the production designer and producer on Netflix's critically- acclaimed animated series Bojack Horseman. Many of the Bojack Horseman team will also be apart of the new series. However Hanawalt made it clear in a vice interview that the show will not be a part of the Bojack Horseman universe. It will stand alone as it's own work.
