New Adult Swim Series "Teenage Euthanasia" Comes of Age This Fall
Animated Comedy Explores Adventures in Death, Family and Florida Living
Sunday, September 19th at Midnight ET/PT
Teenage Euthanasia, Adult Swim's newest coming-of-all-ages comedy series about death, family, and accidental resurrection, premieres Sunday, September 19 at Midnight ET/PT.
Set in near-future inland Florida, Teenage Euthanasia centers around the owners of Tender Endings funeral home, the Fantasy Family: Grandma Baba, her adult children Uncle Pete and Trophy, and Trophy's teenage daughter, Euthanasia ("Annie"), a name accidentally given to her during the time of Trophy's own unbearable suffering.
Back when Trophy was a teen herself; she ran away from home after giving birth to Annie, leaving her newborn to be raised by Baba and Uncle Pete. Now, fifteen years later, Trophy returns to Tender Endings...as a corpse, for burial. When a bolt of lightning strikes Baba's homemade embalming fluid and one of Annie's tears, Trophy comes back from the dead. As a resurrected woman, Trophy has a variety of quasi-useful death powers. But more importantly, she has a second chance at unplanned parenthood.
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 half-hour animated series is co-created by Alissa Nutting, The New York Times Editor's Choice writer (Made for Love) and Emmy-nominated producer, Alyson Levy (The Shivering Truth). Teenage Euthanasia is produced by PFFR and animated by Augenblick Studios. Executive producers include Lisa M. Thomas, Vernon Chatman, and John Lee, with Scott Adsit as co-executive producer.
