Netflix orders animated Tuca & Bertie, featuring Tiffany Haddish
Netflix has added to its animation slate with a series order for Tuca & Bertie, from the team behind BoJack Horseman. The new series is produced by Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company.
The animated series is a comedy about the friendship between two 30-year-old bird women who live in the same apartment building: Tuca, a cocky, care-free toucan, and Bertie, an anxious, daydreaming songbird. Tiffany Haddish will voice Tuca in the series.
Lisa Hanawalt (BoJack Horseman) created the series, which consists of 10 episodes for its first season. Hanawalt is an executive producer alongside Raphael Bob-Waksberg (BoJack Horseman), Noel Bright (BoJack Horseman, Friends), Steven A. Cohen (BoJack Horseman, Jack & Bobby) and Haddish. Animation is being done at Shadowmachine.
Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish will next be seen opposite Tracy Morgan on The Last O.G. (premiering April 3 on TBS) and opposite Kevin Hart in Universal Pictures’ Night School (releasing September 28). Her additional upcoming projects include Limited Partners, The Oath, The Kitchen, and The Temp, the latter of which she will also executive produce.
