Malltown: Natasha Rothwell to Star in Comedy Central’s New Animated Pilot
According to Deadline, Comedy Central has given a pilot order to the animated comedy series titled Malltown with Insecure actress Natasha Rothwell signing on as the lead star and executive producer. The animated pilot hails from Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer.
Set in a declining mall, Malltown follows the coming-of-age adventures of a 13-year-old girl named Libby. Seen through the eyes of the budding teen, the mall is a microcosm of America and everything that’s totally screwed up about it. Natasha Rothwell will be lending her voice to Libby.
The series has been in development since 2018. It will be executive produced by Rothwell, Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer, and Mike Perry. This project will be Jacobson and Glazer’s latest collaboration with Comedy Central as they both starred in the network’s hit sitcom Broad City which ran on-air for five seasons from 2014-2019.
Natasha Rothwell is best known for her role as Kelli in HBO’s comedy-drama series Insecure which she also serves as a writer. She recently starred in Paramount Pictures’ Sonic the Hedgehog film and will next be in the highly-anticipated DC film sequel Wonder Woman 1984.
