We are only a couple of weeks away from the premiere, and here’s what we know so far.
Facebook Watch is gearing up for the debut of their brand-new adult animated series, Human Discoveries.
The series features a star-studded cast including Zac Efron as Gary, Anna Kendrick as Jane, Lamorne Morris as Trog, Jillian Bell as Minerva, and Paul Scheer as Ugg, the series follows a group of friends living at the dawn of human civilization as they discover necessities like fire and the wheel. But, much more importantly, they stumble onto humanity’s best, and worst, innovations. Art. Alcohol. Fashion. Racism. Small talk. And, much to their confusion, monogamy.
Created by longtime childhood friends, Chris Bruno and David Howard Lee, the idea for the animated series was born over a shared bag of popcorn that led them to wonder about the first person to pop a corn kernel over a fire. The series evolved into a social commentary on 2019 through the lens of prehistoric times.
Human Discoveries is produced by ShadowMachine, the team behind the hit series “Bojack Horseman,” and Zac Efron’s production company Ninja’s Runnin’ Wild.
The series will premiere with the first three episodes on Facebook Watch on July 16 at 6 p.m. PT / 9 p.m. ET.
