Welcome to Cognito Inc.!

In the world of Inside Job, Netflix’s new adult animated comedy, every conspiracy theory under the sun is true (well... almost every conspiracy theory). The first trailer, which debuted at Netflix’s Tudum fan event on Saturday, reveals more about the people behind these conspiracies.

The kooky workplace comedy takes place in the halls of Cognito, Inc., a company that works for the enigmatic Shadow Government and is responsible for basically every conspiracy theory out there. The show centers on Reagan Ridley (Lizzy Caplan) an antisocial genius — and daughter of Cognito Inc., co-founder Rand (Christian Slater) — who wants a chance to lead her own team. But because her people skills are lacking, she’s assigned a partner: Brett Hand (Clark Duke), an incredibly generic yet incredibly affable fellow who’s just happy to be part of the team! Sure, that team includes a hybrid dolphin-man and a sentient mushroom alien, but hey! Friends!

Inside Job comes from Gravity Falls writer Shion Takeuchi, with Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch serving as co-executive producer. The show hits Netflix on Oct. 22.
