from Amazon the hospital is concentrating.
The retail/streamer giant has placed an official two-season order for the animated sci-fi comedy from executive producers Maya Rudolph and Natasha Lyonne. The comedy, first announced in early 2020, has also set up its star-studded cast with Keke Palmer, Greta Lee, Kieran Culkin, Sam Smith and Rudolph and Lyonne set to voice central roles in the series from creator Cirocco Dunlap. (Russian doll, big mouth).
The series follows Sleech and Klak – aliens, best friends and intergalactic-renowned surgeons – as they tackle anxious parasites, illegal time loops and STIs from deep space. Risking their careers to take on a remarkable case, they put existence itself in danger. Although considering their dismal personal lives, forgetfulness might be an improvement.
Palm (Alice, Hustlers, No) will lead the cast as Dr. Klak, a brilliant multi-eyed surgeon who spends her free time nurturing her sensitive plants, obsessively reviewing past failures, and watching a hit show. My lover, my clone with her best friend, Dr. Sleech. Lee (The morning show) voices Dr. Sleech, a reckless and arrogant surgeon whose main saving graces are his genius, his well-oiled lizard tail, and his unconditional love for his best friend, Dr. Klak.
Line Producer Lyonne (Russian doll) plays Nurse Tup, a mischievous, chameleon-fleshed nihilist who thrives in the chaos of the hospital. Nurse Tup expertly navigates all the accidental apocalypses created by renegade doctors Sleech and Klak, and looks good doing it. Companion EP Maya Rudolph (Big mouth) is Dr. Vlam, a trainee robot who has lived for at least 20,000 years. She’s had every career you can think of – king, thief, stay-at-home mom of 500 – and is a true testament to hard work. All you need to be successful is about 850 years of free time.
Culkin (Succession) voices Dr. Plowp, surgeon, empath and adult going through puberty. He has a love-hate relationship with Sleech, constantly senses each other’s feelings, and has four identical brothers who he shared an egg with. Singer-songwriter Smith voices Dr. Azel, a galactic-renowned surgeon with ambiguous morals and well-groomed six feet.
