Arnett (“The Millers,” “Arrested Development”) voices BoJack, star of a 1990’s “Full House”-style sitcom struggling with self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. He’s now starring in his dream movie — a biopic of Secretariat — but is still trying to pull himself out of a rut.
Returning cast includes Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”) as BoJack’s human roommate Todd Chavez; Amy Sedaris (“Chef”) as the cat Princess Carolyn; Alison Brie (“Community”) as BoJack’s ghostwriter; and Paul F. Tompkins (HBO’s “Mr. Show With Bob and David”) as a dog named Mr. Peanutbutter.
“BoJack Horseman” was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, who exec produces with Steven A. Cohen, Noel Bright, Arnett and Paul. “BoJack” was designed by graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt and is animated by L.A.-based ShadowMachine. The show is produced by Michael Eisner’s Tornante Co. exclusively for Netflix.
Netflix, in addition to reviving “Arrested Development” in 2013 for a fourth season, has a deal for comedy “Flaked” starring Arnett slated to debut next year. Arnett is repped by WME and Principato-Young.
