Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong are the voices behind Netflix’s upcoming animated collection, Tuca & Bertie, which I am fairly positive will grow to be our new favourite present. I ought to add that the eponymous characters are literally two 30-something fowl girls: big-screen breakout comic Haddish voices the daring and gregarious Tuca the toucan, and stand-up star Wong is her introverted BFF and neighbor, Bertie the songbird. The present follows them as they navigate what every other bird-woman would: careers, relationships, intercourse, and vanity. The Strolling Useless‘s Steven Yeun performs Bertie’s live-in boyfriend.
On Thursday, Netflix launched a behind-the-scenes sneak peek on the making of the present, together with sit-down interviews with the hilarious stars, who clearly have chemistry behind the mic. Of their characters, Wong says that there are some real-life similarities. “In a variety of methods, it form of does mirror us. Tiffany’s on the market and about, and she’s enjoyable and never repressed, and I am form of a recluse and I am a homebody.” And as an enormous BoJack Horseman fan, I instantly acknowledged the illustration type and was thrilled to see that supervising producer Lisa Hanawalt is the creator of this anthropomorphic sitcom, too.
Tuca & Bertie may even function voice performances by Nicole Byer, Richard E. Grant, John Early, Reggie Watts, Tig Notaro, Amber Ruffin, Jermaine Fowler, and Tessa Thompson. The collection hits Netflix on Might three, and I’m in.
