Netflix has signed Brutus Pink, the newly formed animation production company from Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett — the creative team behind adult animated series “Big Mouth” — to a multiyear deal to produce animated series and films for its members worldwide.
“Big Mouth” is an Emmy nominated adult animated comedy about puberty. Inspired by Kroll and Goldberg’s childhood, it follows a group of friends and their hormone monsters as they navigate adolescence, human sexuality, and coming of age. Season three returns this fall and under the new deal Netflix has greenlit three more seasons of “Big Mouth.”
“’Big Mouth’ brilliantly captures the most awkward phase in a person’s life, puberty, in a hilarious yet heartwarming way,” Mike Moon, head of adult animation for Netflix, said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited to continue our relationship with Brutus Pink and bring more stories, more humor, and more hormones to Netflix members around the world.”
“Netflix has given us the best creative experience imaginable, and we’ve been able to build an amazing community of talented writers, actors, producers and artists. We’re thrilled to be continuing with everyone for years to come,” the Brutus Pink team said in a statement.
The four creators are set to receive an award for comedy writers of the year at Just for Laughs this coming weekend. The annual festival held in Montreal is the largest international comedy festival in the world.
