The BoJack Horseman returns to television in mid-2014 with an all-new Netflix series. The horseman was the star of popular family sitcom “Horsin’ Around” in the ’90s.
Now, the horseman (voiced by Will Arnett of “Arrested Development” fame) has been trying to find his way through a low point in his life. But he’s primed for a comeback, with the help of his human sidekick Todd (voiced by Aaron Paul of “Breaking Bad” fame), and his feline agent Princess Caroline (voiced by Amy Sedaris).
Season one will have 12 episodes. A specific release date, or trailer, hasn’t been released, but Netflix said that it should hit service in the middle of this year.
“Even though he’s been out to pasture, I’ve always admired BoJack for his inimitable style and can-do attitude,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for Netflix, in a statement. “I couldn’t be more thrilled that he’s getting off his legendary haunches to join the Internet TV revolution here on Netflix.”
Michael Eisner’s Tornante Company is producing the series.
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.”
Executive producers for the series are Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Steven A. Cohen, and Noel Bright, as well as Arnett and Paul.
