Amazon Greenlights First Adult Animation Series

Taking another page from Netflix, Amazon Studios March 6 announced production green light for “Undone,” an animated adult series from Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Writers Guild Award winner Kate Purdy – the creative team behind Netflix’s adult animated series, “BoJack Horseman.”

The series, which is produced by Michael Eisner’s Tornante Company, is in pre-production and expected to premiere in 2019 on Prime Video in over 200 countries.

“Undone” is a 30-minute dramedy that explores the elastic nature of reality through its central character, Alma. After getting into a near fatal car accident, Alma discovers she has a new relationship with time and uses this ability to find out the truth about her father’s death.

Dutch artist Hisko Hulsing (“Montage of Heck”) will oversee the production design and direct a team of animators working in the Netherlands. The animation will be done with Dutch co-producer and Amsterdam-based studio Submarine, and Austin-based studio Minnow Mountain.

“Kate and Raphael are dynamic and creative forces, and I know they will create an amazing series for us,” Sharon Yguado, head of scripted series, Amazon Studios, said in a statement.
