IMDb (www.imdb.com) has announced its first-ever animated series: short-form “You’re Not a Monster” (www.imdb.com/monster). In the series, Kelsey Grammer (who also serves as executive producer) voices a former psychiatrist-turned-vampire, who mentors his great-great grandson “Max” (Eric Stonestreet), a therapist who has inherited his practice. In each four to five minute episode, Max treats classic monsters including Frankenstein, The Invisible Man and Medusa as they seek desperately needed therapeutic help.
Rounding out the series cast is Aparna Nancherla as a demon receptionist, Ellie Kemper as a therapist who thinks Max is imagining everything, and Peter Grosz, Langston Kerman, Joel Kim Booster, Patton Oswalt, Adam Pally, Amber Ruffin, Amy Sedaris and Milana Vayntrub as hideous monsters. Show creators and cast members including Grammer and Nancherla will participate in an exclusive interview with host Kevin Smith on the IMDboat at San Diego Comic-Con on July 20.
Fans will get a sneak peek of the 10-episode, short-form series when its trailer premieres on the IMDboat at Comic-Con International: San Diego later this month, and full episodes will premiere this fall. The show joins other IMDb original series now airing including “The IMDb Show,” “IMDbrief” and “Casting Calls.”
