Last March, it was reported that Netflix was in development on Tuca & Bertie, an animated series starring comedians Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong.
Netflix released the first trailer for the upcoming animated series. Per usual, the clip comes equipped with a heavy dose of humor. Created by BoJack Horseman creator Lisa Hanawalt, the series revolves around Tuca (Tiffany Haddish) and Bertie (Ali Wong), an eclectic duo of 30-something bird-women who live in the same apartment. While Haddish’s Tuca is a free-spirited toucan with a taste for adventure, Wong’s Bertie is a neurotic songbird who has a habit of daydreaming.
In the trailer, the contrast is evident in scenes where Tuca laments that Bertie doesn’t want to have fun adventures anymore. The contrast is further evident when Bertie learns Tuca owns a pet jaguar.
Aside from Haddish and Wong, Tuca & Bertie will also feature voice-over work from Steven Yeun, Nicole Byer and Tessa Thompson.
Tuca & Bertie premieres on Netflix May 3.
