Netflix Adds ‘BoJack Horseman’ Animated Comedy Starring Will Arnett and Aaron Paul to Originals Stable

Series from Michael Eisner's Tornante to bow in mid-2014

Netflix has acquired animated comedy “BoJack Horseman,” voiced by Will Arnett and Aaron Paul, from Michael Eisner’s Tornante Co., the streamer’s first adult-oriented animated original.

Series, with all 12 episodes set to bow on Netflix sometime in mid-2014, revolves around whiskey-drinking humanoid horse and former TV star BoJack (Arnett) who deals with his personal crises with human sidekick Todd (Paul) and feline agent and ex-lover Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris). “BoJack Horseman” will be available in all Netflix territories.

“Even though he’s been out to pasture, I’ve always admired BoJack for his inimitable style and can-do attitude,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said. “I couldn’t be more thrilled that he’s getting off his legendary haunches to join the Internet TV revolution here on Netflix.”

“BoJack Horseman” was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg. The titular character was the “legendary star of the 1990s family-favorite sitcom ‘Horsin’ Around'” — which never existed. The series will be executive produced by Bob-Waksberg, Steven A. Cohen and Noel Bright, with Arnett and Paul also serving as exec producers. BoJack was designed by graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt and the series will be animated by L.A.-based ShadowMachine.

“As a studio executive involved in successful sitcoms like ‘Happy Days,’ ‘Barney Miller’ and ‘Cheers,’ I always regretted BoJack wasn’t on my team,” Michael Eisner said in a statement. “But now, with Tornante in the saddle, BoJack is exactly where he belongs, in full creative control, and on Netflix.”
