Warner Media announced a new “coming of age” animated comedy series for Adult Swim. The show is co-created by Alissa Nutting and Alyson Levy with animation being provided by Augenblick Studios. It is set to be released in the Fall on September 19th at Midnight and will explore death, family, and “Florida living.”
Warner said in a press release, “‘Teenage Euthanasia,’ Adult Swim’s newest coming-of-all-ages comedy series about death, family, and accidental resurrection.”
The premise is set “in near-future inland Florida, Teenage Euthanasia centers around the owners of Tender Endings funeral home, the Fantasy Family: Grandma Baba, her adult children Uncle Pete and Trophy, and Trophy’s teenage daughter, Euthanasia (“Annie”), a name accidentally given to her during the time of Trophy’s own unbearable suffering.”
“Back when Trophy was a teen herself; she ran away from home after giving birth to Annie, leaving her newborn to be raised by Baba and Uncle Pete. Now, fifteen years later, Trophy returns to Tender Endings…as a corpse, for burial. When a bolt of lightning strikes Baba’s homemade embalming fluid and one of Annie’s tears, Trophy comes back from the dead. As a resurrected woman, Trophy has a variety of quasi-useful death powers. But more importantly, she has a second chance at unplanned parenthood,” they continue.
