This morning, AMC unveiled the rest of their star studded voice cast that is making up their new animated series, Ultra City Smiths.
The newly announced cast for the series includes Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard, Alia Shawkat, Tim Meadows, Terry O’Quinn, Debra Winger, Luis Guzmán, Julian Barratt, Sunita Mani, and Tom Waits. They are joining the previously announced Jimmi Simpson, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, John C. Reilly, Bebe Neuwirth, Jason Mantzoukas, Damon Herriman, Melissa Villaseñor, Kurtwood Smith, Tim Heidecker, Chris Conrad and Hana Mae Lee.
The series, which was created by Steve Conrad alongside Stoopid Buddy Stoodios (Robot Chicken), sees its story unfold “via the stop-motion animation of baby dolls repurposed as a grown-up cast of characters. The series hinges on an investigation into the mysterious disappearance of fictional metropolis Ultra City’s most famous magnate (Smith). Two intrepid detectives (Simpson and Randolph) follow the case, rallying to fight against their city’s dangerous corruption, at a high cost to themselves and their families, all in pursuit of a gentler place to call home.”
“I’m grateful that this group of actors, who could work with whomever they choose on whatever they choose, chose to work with us,” said Conrad in a statement.
The series debuts on the streaming platform AMC+ July 22nd, with the first season’s six episodes airing on the AMC channel in the fall.
