It probably won’t include any misanthropic horses

BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg and writer Kate Purdy are headed to Amazon to tell a new story about the concept of reality.

Undone is a “half-hour animated dramedy that explores the elastic nature of reality through its central character, Alma,” according to a press release. Alma, voiced by Rosa Salazar (Alita: Battle Angel), discovers she has a new relationship with time itself after surviving a near-fatal car accident. Alma uses her new ability to investigate the truth surrounding her father’s death.

Dutch artist Hisko Hulsing, who is best known for his work on the Kurt Cobain documentary, Montage of Heck, will oversee animation on the project.

“Hisko’s beautiful artwork and masterful use of light and color will create a look never seen before on a television show that will make audiences lose their minds,” Bob-Waksberg said in a press release.

Amazon ordered Undone directly to series instead of testing the waters with a few episodes, and the show is already in pre-production. The series will be exclusive to Amazon Prime subscribers when it launches in 2019.

Bob-Waksberg isn’t leaving Netflix just because of the new deal, though. He’ll stay on to help BoJack Horseman in its fifth season, which Netflix ordered late last year. The first four seasons of the show can be streamed on Netflix now.
