Leslie Jones Starring in New WB Adult Comedy

Emmy-nominated Saturday Night Live performer and writer Leslie Jones (Our Flag Means Death, Ghostbusters 2016) is reportedly starring in and executive producing a new adult animated comedy at Warner Bros. Animation.

Details on the project, currently in early development, are sparse. According to Variety, Jones will be playing the lead character “Plastic,” but the project is unrelated to the adaptation of DC’s Plastic Man announced several years ago.

No other talent has been announced, nor a broadcast/streaming outlet, but the untitled series would be at home alongside WBA’s acclaimed Harley Quinn and Scooby-Doo spinoff Velma in HBO Max’s adult animation slate.

Jones joined SNL for its 2014 season, putting her star on the rise. Having previously appeared in TV and movie titles like The LeagueWorkaholicsThe Blacklist and Trainwreck, Jones took a star turn in the Ghostbusters reboot of 2016. Since leaving SNL in 2019, she has featured in Coming 2 America,  Our Flag Means DeathDeath to 2020 and her own Netflix comedy special.

Jones has also provided voiceover work for animated hits Sing and The Angry Birds Movie 2 — as Zeta, the megalomaniacal eagle bent on world domination.
