Adult Swim, the destination for young adults, has announced the pick-up of “Teenage Euthanasia,” which is described as a dystopic coming-of-all-ages comedy series about death, family, and accidental resurrection. The logline: Set in a mildly apocalyptic near-future, “Teenage Euthanasia” centers around the Fantasy Family and their inland Florida funeral home, Tender Endings. The cast of characters include recently undead Trophy Fantasy (voiced by Maria Bamford); her teenage daughter, Euthanasia “Annie” Fantasy (voiced by Jo Firestone); Annie’s Oedipus-complex-stricken Uncle Pete (voiced by Tim Robinson); and Annie’s “old country” immigrant grandmother Baba (voiced by Bebe Neuwirth).
The animated series is co-created by Alissa Nutting, a New York Times Editor’s Choice writer (“Made for Love”) and producer, Alyson Levy (“The Shivering Truth”). “Teenage Euthanasia” is currently in production and will premiere in 2021. It is produced by PFFR and animated by Augenblick Studios.
