DreamWorks Animation has unveiled the season 1 promo for its new animated kids’ series Archibald’s Next Big Thing, premiering Friday, September 6 on Netflix! From the creative mind of two-time Emmy Award winner Tony Hale, Archibald’s Next Big Thing follows the adventures of Archibald Strutter, a chicken who “yes-ands” his way through life.
Though living in the moment often leads him astray, Archibald always finds his way back home to an egg-shaped house he shares with his three siblings, Sage, Finley, and Loy, and his trusty sidekick, Bea. Archibald’s Next Big Thing is a fresh comedy about the importance of being present and celebrating the journey, not just the destination. With each twist and turn, this gangly, happy chicken shows everyone around him how important it is to get out of your comfort zone and see the best in everyone and every situation.
The series is created and executive produced by Hale, executive produced by Eric Fogel (Descendants: Wicked World, Celebrity Deathmatch), and was developed for television by Drew Champion (Game Talk Live) and Jacob Moffat (Tiny Tiny Talk Show).
The all-star voice cast includes Hale as “Archibald,” Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) as “Sage,” Chelsea Kane (Baby Daddy) as “Loy,” Jordan Fisher (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before 2) as “Finly,” Kari Wahlgren (Spirit Riding Free) as “Bea” and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) as the playfully sarcastic “Narrator.” The series also features several guest voices, including Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), Casey Wilson (Black Monday), RuPaul (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Christine Baranski (The Good Fight), Gary Cole (Veep) and more.
