Netflix Greenlights Animated Series from Nick Kroll

Netflix has greenlit “Big Mouth,” an animated series from Nick Kroll with a 10-episode order, Variety has learned.

The 30-minute “edgy, surreal animated comedy” about teenaged adventures in puberty hails from Kroll and his real-life best friend Andrew Goldberg, a writer/producer on “Family Guy.”

The two characters are named Nick and Andrew with Kroll voicing his namesake and comedian John Mulaney lending his voice to Andrew. (The real-life Andrew is not voicing any of the main characters.)

Other voice actors include Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate and “Inside Amy Schumer’s” Jessi Klein.

“There are few things that keep me up at night…Nick Kroll’s adventures in puberty is one of them, so we greenlit this series with very few questions asked,” said Netflix’s vice president of original content, Cindy Holland.

Kroll commented: “Andrew and I have been best friends since 1st grade, so this show is over 30 years in the making. I can’t wait to tell all the stories that make up the glorious nightmare of puberty.”

Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett created “Big Mouth” with Kroll and Goldberg. All four will serve as exec producers on the comedy, which is produced by Netflix.

“Big Mouth” will launch on Netflix in 2017.
