Newly-launched short-form video streamer Quibi — which has totted up 1.7 million downloads in its first week — has announced the development of Filthy Animals (working title), a 2D animated science-fiction comedy series featuring Rashida Jones; written by acclaimed artists and twin brothers, Nikolai and Simon Haas; and produced by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios (Robot Chicken).
Filthy Animals centers on Sunny Day (voiced by Jones), a too smart for her own good, lonely 12-year-old suburban middle schooler who befriends a selfish, renegade, messy, suave adoptive cat, Cruz.
The series is created and written by Nikolai Haas, Simon Haas and Johnny Smith. Executive producers are Seth Green, John Harvatine IV, Matthew Senreich, Eric Towner, Chris Waters, Will McCormack and Rashida Jones (Le Train Train).
