Tiffany Haddish Gets Her Own ‘BoJack Horseman’ With Netflix’s ‘Tuca and Bertie’
Everywhere you look (or listen), there’s Tiffany Haddish. The Girls Trip star and fan-favorite will next take a page from the BoJack Horseman playbook with her own Netflix animated series, playing one of the title creatures of Tuca & Bertie.
Netflix announced the project with a ten-episode order, as created by BoJack Horseman alum Lisa Hanawalt and produced by Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company, with BoJack vets Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Noel Bright, Steven A. Cohen and Haddish herself producing. The series is described as “a comedy about the friendship between two 30-year-old bird women who live in the same apartment building: Tuca, a cocky, care-free toucan, and Bertie, an anxious, daydreaming songbird.” Haddish will play Tuca, while no voice for Bertie has yet been announced.
Check out a first photo of Tuca & Bertie below, in which – if I’m not mistaken – there appear to be topless snakes:
Haddish will also soon be seen and heard in Tracy Morgan’s new TBS comedy The Last OG, and has inked a first-look deal to develop new HBO shows. Other upcoming projects include Limited Partners, The Oath, The Kitchen, and The Temp, and likely a project with Paul Thomas Anderson. Truly #blessed are we in the age of Haddish.
Tuca & Bertie has not yet set a premiere window for 2018 or 2019, though BoJack Horseman Season 5 is expected to premiere later this year. Stay tuned for more in the meantime.
