Pushing the Boundaries of What's Possible in Adult Animation

Mike Moon

Head of Adult Animation

No two Netflix adult animated shows are the same and that's how we like it. From comedy mainstays like Big Mouth and F Is for Family, to uncharted storytelling experiences likeThe Midnight Gospel - there's something for everyone. And we're excited to expand our slate and push the boundaries of what's possible in adult animation.

Like partnering with the leading voices in stop motion animation - Emma de Swaef and Marc Roels, Niki Lindroth von Bahr, and Paloma Baeza - to create a true work-of-art that is our upcoming anthology The House, and empowering new voices, like Shion Takeuchi, the creator and executive producer of Inside Job, and Kelly Galuska, the co-creator and executive producer of Human Resources, who are both first-time showrunners.

In addition to working with some of the best production studios in the world, we've also built our own state-of-the-art adult animation studio in Los Angeles. It's here where the greatest creative minds in adult animation come together to make industry-defining content, reflective of the diversity in cast, crew, tone and format we strive for in all of our series and films.

And today, we're proud to unveil new details about where we're headed. We're introducing our first-stop motion anthology, The House, at the same place where it first began - the Annecy International Animation Film Festival.

The House

The House: Today, we announced the cast for The House, an eccentric dark comedy directed by the leading voices in independent stop motion animation: Emma de Swaef and Marc Roels, Niki Lindroth von Bahr and Paloma Baeza. Produced by Nexus Studios, the anthology centers on a house and the three surreal tales of the individuals who made it their home. The House is produced by Nexus Studios (This Way Up, Back to The Moon).

Chapter One, from filmmakers Emma de Swaef & Marc James Roels, includes voice cast: Claudie Blakley, Matthew Goode, Mia Goth, Mark Heap, Miranda Richardson, Josh McGuire and Stephanie Cole.

Chapter Two, from filmmaker Niki Lindroth von Bahr, includes voice cast: musicians Jarvis Cocker and Dizzee Rascal, and Yvonne Lombard and Sven Wollter.

Chapter Three, from filmmaker Paloma Baeza, includes voice cast: Helena Bonham-Carter, Paul Kaye, and Will Sharpe.

Inside Job

Inside Job: We also announced the series regulars for our highly-anticipated animated series, Inside Job as part of creator / showrunner Shion Takeuchi (Gravity Falls) and executive producer Alex Hirsch's (Gravity Falls) sneak peek during the festival. Inside Job is the first project from Takeuchi's deal and the first adult animation series created in-house by Netflix Animation Studios.

Inside Job is an adult animated comedy about the shadow government - and the dysfunctional team whose daily grind is committing the world's conspiracies. From convoluted coverups to secret societies to masked orgy etiquette, navigating office culture at Cognito Inc. can be tricky, especially for anti-social tech genius Reagan Ridley. Even in a workplace filled with reptilian shapeshifters and psychic mushrooms, she's seen as the odd one out for believing the world could be a better place. Reagan thinks she can make a difference, if only she could manage her unhinged, manifesto-writing father and her irresponsible coworkers, to finally snag the promotion she's been dreaming about.

Cast: Lizzy Caplan is Reagan Ridley, Cognito Inc.'s antisocial tech genius; Christian Slater is Rand Ridley, Reagan's father, and disgraced head of Cognito Inc.; Clark Duke is Brett Hand, a lovable D.C. yes-dude; Andrew Daly is J.R. Scheimpough, CEO of Cognito; Bobby Lee plays Dr. Andre, a free-spirited biochemist; John DiMaggio is Glenn Dolphman, a half-man, half-dolphin; Tisha Campbell plays Gigi, Cognito's fast-talking Head of Media Manipulation and Subliminal Messages; and Brett Gelman is Magic Myc, a psychic subterranean mushroom creature from a hive mind deep within Hollow Earth.

Human Resources

Human Resources: From the inventive minds behind Big Mouth comes the even edgier and adult-ier Human Resources. The spinoff pulls back the curtain on the daily lives of the creatures - Hormone Monsters, Depression Kitties, Shame Wizards and many more - that help humans journey through every aspect of life from puberty to childbirth to the twilight years. It quickly becomes clear that though the creatures are the protagonists, they have a lot of humanity themselves. The series is co-created and executive produced by Kelly Galuska, Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Jennifer Flackett and Mark Levin. Human Resources is produced by Brutus Pink and Titmouse, Inc.

Cast: Nick Kroll as "Maury the Hormone Monster," Maya Rudolph as "Connie the Hormone Monstress," and David Thewlis as "The Shame Wizard," are joined by Aidy Bryant, Brandon Kyle Goodman, Keke Palmer, and Randall Park.
