Netflix and Blink Industries announce a new 2D animated series DeadEndia based on the graphic novels from award-winning creator Hamish Steele. The series will be produced at the Blink Industries studio in London and will premiere globally on Netflix in 2021.
Based on Hamish’s horror-comedy graphic novels of the same name and web short Dead End, the series follows the adventures of Barney, Norma, and magical-talking-dog Pugsley, as they balance their summer jobs at the local theme park haunted house while battling the totally real supernatural forces that dwell within it. Together with their guide to the underworld multiplane, a sardonic thousand-year-old demon named Courtney, they’ll face zombie mascots, demonic game show hosts, sleep-sucking witches, and the scariest thing of all: their first crushes!
The graphic novels have been lauded for capturing the growing pains of early adulthood of characters with a wide variety of identities and experiences including Barney, a transgender teen, and neurodiverse Norma.
The series will star Zach Barack as Barney (Spider-Man: Far from Home), Kody Kavitha as Norma (Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Emily Osment as Courtney (Almost Family, The Kominsky Method), Alex Brightman as Pugsley (Beetlejuice The Musical), Clinton Leupp a.k.a. Miss Coco Peru as Pauline Phoenix (Will & Grace), Kenny Tran as Logs (Maybe Happy Ending), and Kathreen Khavari as Badyah (Marvel Rising, Insecure, Big Little Lies).
