ANIMALS. focuses on the downtrodden creatures native to Earth's least-habitable environment: New York City.

Among the critical raves for the show, Vulture called it "one of the funniest, most idiosyncratic shows on television," noting that the series "always fills a viewer with glee," while Decider described ANIMALS. as an "offbeat hidden gem" and "bitingly funny."
