Maya Rudolph and Natasha Lyonne team with Cirocco Dunlap on a new animated sci-fi series for Amazon. 

Dunlap, who is a writer and supervising producer on Lyonne’s acclaimed Netflix series Russian Doll, will write and executive produce the forthcoming series. Lyonne, Rudolph and Animal Pictures’ Danielle Renfrew Behrens will also exec produce.

The series will follow Sleech and Klak, two brilliant alien doctors who specialize in rare sci-fi illnesses. When Sleech defies protocol and contracts a disease from another dimension, the heroes must find a cure before the universe is destroyed.

“Cirocco is an incredibly gifted and hilarious talent and we can’t wait to share her irreverent and existential point of view: a sci-fi world so deep and so strange and so animated,” Rudolph and Lyonne said in a statement.

Amazon has already put The Hospital into active development.
