Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of the adult animated series Bad Crimes from creator Nicole Silverberg (pictured top, left), a former supervising writer on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and editor at Reductress, the online satirical women’s magazine.
Who’s involved with the series: King of the Hill creators Mike Judge (pictured top, middle) and Greg Daniels (right) are executive producers through their new production company Bandera Entertainment. Erica Hayes, a director on Rick and Morty season 4, is handling the visual development of the show and will also serve as EP. Other EPs are Dustin Davis of Bandera and the two lead voice actresses, Nicole Byer and Lauren Lapkus.
What is the show about: Byer and Lapkus are Kara and Jennie, two FBI agents who travel across the country to solve grisly crimes while juggling their friendship, career ambitions, and as many men as possible. Netflix describes the series as a “dark comedy procedural.” Silverberg says she chose to work with Netflix because the streamer “encourages my grossest, most violent comedy fantasies.”
