Netflix Expands Adult Animated Content Slate with ‘Paradise, P.D.’ from ‘Brickleberry’ Team

     April 4, 2018


Netflix’s current adult animation slate includes such surprisingly profound series as Big Mouth, BoJack Horseman and the recently announced Tuca & Bertie, but a brand new comedy series is in the works. The streaming-content giant today announced that they’ve greenlit Paradise, P.D., a new adult animated comedy series from Roger Black and Waco O’Guin, better known as the co-creators of Brickleberry. That series followed the outrageous exploits of National Park forest rangers, but as you might have guessed, the new title takes aim at some small-town, “backwater Southern-fried” police officers

Arriving later this year, with an order of 10 half-hour episodes, Paradise, P.D. is produced by Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment with animation courtesy of Bento Box. The official logline is as follows:

They’re bad cops. Not bad like no nonsense. Not bad like cool. Bad like shitty. Paradise PD: They’re the worst responders. From the creators of Brickleberry comes this take on a small-town police department.

Here’s a look at the characters and their associated voice cast (from left to right):

  • Stanley Hopson – Dana Snyder (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Squidbillies)
  • Gerald Fitzgerald – Cedric Yarbrough (Speechless)
  • Kevin Crawford – Dave Herman (Brickleberry, Bob’s Burgers)
  • Chief Randall Crawford – Tom Kenny (Spongebob Squarepants)
  • Gina Jabowski – Sarah Chalke (Roseanne, Scrubs, Rick & Morty)
  • Bullet (dog) – Kyle Kinane (The Standups)
  • Dusty Marlow – Dana Snyder (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Squidbillies)

I’m not expecting Paradise, P.D. to be on par with the Emmy-nominated BoJack Horseman or even the unexpectedly poignant, self-reflective and unabashed humor of Big Mouth, but I am expecting to see something close to Comedy Central’s Brickleberry series for obvious reasons. Will the Netflix model allow the creators a bit more freedom when it comes to the production process, or will it simply effect viewers who will get a chance to take in the full, 10-episode first season in one shot? Time will tell, but more diversity of content for the already-massive library is definitely a selling point. Be sure to let us know if you’re curious to check out Paradise, P.D. later this year!
