Amazon Studios announced the cast for their original adult animated comedy ‘Fairfax,’ which will have a first season consisting of eight episodes. The show is created by Matthew Hausfater, Aaron Buchsbaum, and Teddy Riley with the artist Somehoodlum designing the characters.
According to a press release, the cast includes:
- Skyler Gisondo voices Dale, an earnest, outdoorsy kid from Oregon, who is new to Los Angeles. He loves his dad and his fanny pack, and with his cargo shorts and hiking boots, he’s the accidental poster child for normcore. Gisondo’s credits include Booksmart and The Righteous Gemstones.
- Kiersey Clemons voices Derica, an aspiring model-slash-activist who is determined to save the planet in style. Clemons is best known for appearing in Hearts Beat Loud and The Flash.
- Peter S. Kim voices Benny, a savvy sneakerhead on a mission for generational clout—right after he practices cello and walks the dog. Kim is best known as a writer on Fox’s Housebroken and was named a “New Face” at the 2021 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival.
- Jaboukie Young-White voices Truman, a self-proclaimed “auteur” filmmaker and a budding Casanova. Young-White is best known for appearing in The Daily Show and Dating & New York.
Additional voices include Pamela Adlon as Phyllis, Jeff Bottoms as The Plug, Yvette Nicole Brown as Trini, Rob Delaney as Grant, Zoey Deutch as Lily, Colton Dunn as Principal Weston, John Leguizamo as Glenn the pigeon, Camila Mendes as Melody, Larry Owens as Jules, Linda Park as Joy, Billy Porter as Hiroki Hassan, Ben Schwartz as Cody, Tim Simons as Brian, and JB Smoove as Quattro the pigeon.
The official synopsis explains that “‘Fairfax’ follows four middle school best friends on their never-ending quest for clout on Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles—the pulsing heart of hypebeast culture.” The series is set to premiere in October 2021.
