Animals

Created by Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano and produced by Duplass Brothers Television, Animals. focuses on the downtrodden creatures native to Earth's least-habitable environment: New York City. Whether it's lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bedbugs in the midst of a midlife crisis, the awkward small talk, moral ambiguity and existential woes of non-human urbanites prove startlingly similar to our own.

Quoted above is the new description for new animated HBO series Animals which premieres on February 5. As Pitchfork points out, among the voice actors are musicians Kurt Vile, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg.

The rest of the cast isn't too shabby either. It includes Eric Andre, Katie Aselton, Jessica Chastain, Rob Corddry, Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass, Ellie Kemper, Nick Kroll, Lauren Lapkus, Melanie Lynsky, Marc Maron, Kumail Nanjiani, Horatio Sanz, Adam Scott, Molly Shannon, Wanda Sykes, Cobie Smulders, Matt Walsh, Zach Woods and Steve Zissis.

A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg and Kurt Vile all have upcoming shows too.
