It is reported exclusively that Leslie Jones will head the voice cast of an adult animated comedy series presently in production at Warner Bros. Animation.
Jones will both executive produce and voice the primary character of Plastic in the unnamed series. The show is unrelated to the female-led version of the DC character Plastic Man that was said to be in the works as a movie back in 2020, according to a source familiar with the project.
The show’s narrative has remained a mystery. There is currently no writer assigned to the series, and it does not have a network home.
Jones is a well-known actress and stand-up comic. She rose to prominence during her tenure as a writer and actor on “Saturday Night Live,” where she worked for several seasons before departing in 2019. During her stint on the show, she received three Emmy nominations, including two for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series. “Our Flag Means Death” and “Workaholics” are among her other TV credits, and she presently anchors the ABC revival of “Supermarket Sweep.” She’s also been in films like “Coming 2 America” and “Ghostbusters” in 2016. Beginning in 2016, she gained considerable accolades for live-tweeting many Olympic events.
At the moment, Warner Bros. Animation has a number of adult animated comedies set up at HBO Max. There’s also “Harley Quinn,” a highly praised DC series that will return for a third season later this year. A spinoff of the sitcom dubbed “Noonan’s,” in which Kite Man buys a bar favored by criminals and thugs, has been ordered to series. Meanwhile, Mindy Kaling presented the first trailer for the upcoming adult animated series “Velma,” which will depict the origin tale of the eponymous “Scooby-Doo” character.
Plastic Woman was the name of the main character in an earlier version of this story. Plastic should be used instead. The mistake has been fixed.
