Netflix will bow “BoJack Horseman,” voiced by Will Arnett and Aaron Paul, on Aug. 22 with the release of all 12 episodes of the adult-themed animated comedy about a hard-drinking humanoid stallion.

The series, from Michael Eisner’s Tornante Co., revolves around former 1990′s sitcom star BoJack (Arnett) who deals with his personal crises with human sidekick Todd (Paul) and feline agent and ex-lover Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris).

“BoJack Horseman” was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg (“The Exquisite Corpse Project”) and is exec produced by Bob-Waksberg, Steven A. Cohen and Noel Bright, with Arnett and Paul also serving as exec producers. BoJack was designed by graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt and the series is animated by L.A.-based ShadowMachine.

Netflix announced its next original series: BoJack Horseman is a cartoon about a horse (voiced by Will Arnett) who was the star of a beloved ’90s sitcom called Horsin’ Around. Now he’s all washed up — but with the help of his former TV sidekick (Aaron Paul) and cat agent/ex-lover Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris), perhaps things are looking up. The show premieres in a twelve-episode chunk some time in the middle of next year, so when you need a break from season two of Orange Is the New Black, there will be a whiskey-loving cartoon horse waiting for you.
