This thing’s intense.
Amazon’s highly anticipated new series, Undone, had it’s first San Diego Comic-Con panel where producers from Minnow Mountain, BoJack Horseman, and others were on hand to showcase two episodes of the show and give more insight as to what we, the viewing public, can expect in the upcoming series.
As part of the panel, we got to see Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Kate Purdy, Rosa Salazar, and director Hisko Hulsing with Kate probably providing the most in-depth insight noting that the concept for Undone came about while producing an episode of BoJack Horseman where BoJack trips out. Undone focuses on mental illness and Rosa Salazar’s character probably having undiagnosed OCD only she’s focused on death and constantly sees illusions of her dead father (Bob Odenkirk).
I think my favorite thing about the series is that it’s not an animated comedy, a genre of adult animation that the likes of FOX, Netflix, and others pretty much have cornered. The only series that can really be compared is Dream Corp LLC just with more rotoscope animation and not a lot of focus on comedy. It’s exciting to see and I think the show is going to do a lot to help differentiate itself from the animated pack. In the meantime, here’s a teaser for you to chew on.
