Fans of the animated TV series ‘Big Mouth’ can get excited for the new A-list lineup within the show’s spinoff series, ‘Human Resources.’ Consisting of original ‘Big Mouth’ stars, Nick Kroll, Maya Rudolph, and David Thewlis, and executive produced by Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett, early details about the show– including new cast members– were recently revealed at the Annecy Animation Film Festival. Some of the most highly anticipated newcomers to ‘Human Resources’ include Aidy Bryant (‘Saturday Night Live’), Randall Park (‘WandaVision,’ ‘Fresh Off the Boat’), and Keke Palmer (‘Hustlers,’ ‘Akeelah and the Bee’), as well as ‘Big Mouth’ writer Brandon Kyle Goodman.
Apart from disclosing information about the ‘Human Resources’ cast, the show’s producers also informed the Annecy festival’s guests and participants of some plot details. For example, ‘Human Resources’ is to take place in the same supernatural world of ‘Big Mouth’ protagonists Maurice (Kroll) and Connie (Rudolph), with monsters like the Shame Wizards, Depression Kitties, and more, leading characters through every stage of life. ‘Human Resources’ will be animated by Titmouse, the animators of ‘Big Mouth,’ ‘Ballmasterz:9009,’ ‘Kinderwood,’ and Netflix’s ‘The Midnight Gospel,’ to name a few.
Executive producer Kroll hopes that fans will hold a similar attachment to the story and characters of ‘Human Resources,’ as his main goal is to create characters that “represent a major force in the human condition.”
