Netflix has announced details for its adult animated series Inside Job created by Shion Takeuchi, a writer on Gravity Falls and Regular Show.
- Inside Job is the first project from Takeuchi’s overall deal with the streamer, as well as the first adult animation series created in-house by Netflix Animation Studios.
- In addition to creating the show, Takeuchi is also the showrunner. The show is executive produced by Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch.
- Logline: Inside Job is about the shadow government – and the dysfunctional team whose daily grind is committing the world’s conspiracies. From convoluted coverups to secret societies to masked orgy etiquette, navigating office culture at Cognito Inc. can be tricky, especially for anti-social tech genius Reagan Ridley. Even in a workplace filled with reptilian shapeshifters and psychic mushrooms, she’s seen as the odd one out for believing the world could be a better place. Reagan thinks she can make a difference, if only she could manage her unhinged, manifesto-writing father and her irresponsible coworkers, to finally snag the promotion she’s been dreaming about.
- Cast: Lizzy Caplan is Reagan Ridley, Cognito Inc.’s antisocial tech genius; Christian Slater is Rand Ridley, Reagan’s father, and disgraced head of Cognito Inc.; Clark Duke is Brett Hand, a lovable D.C. yes-dude; Andrew Daly is J.R. Scheimpough, CEO of Cognito; Bobby Lee plays Dr. Andre, a free-spirited biochemist; John DiMaggio is Glenn Dolphman, a half-man, half-dolphin; Tisha Campbell plays Gigi, Cognito’s fast-talking Head of Media Manipulation and Subliminal Messages; and Brett Gelman is Magic Myc, a psychic subterranean mushroom creature from a hive mind deep within Hollow Earth.
