Meet The Characters. Netflix has released the official trailer for their new original sketch comedy series, The Characters.
The series stars up-and-coming comedians Lauren Lapkus, Kate Berlant, Dr. Brown, Paul W. Downs, John Early, Tim Robinson, Natasha Rothwell, and Henry Zebrowski.
The Characters will feature original sketches from the eight comedians in each half-hour episode. The series will feature guest appearances from Cecily Strong, Tyson Beckford, and Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson.
From Netflix, in a press statement:
One show. Eight comedians. Multiple personalities. In Netflix Presents: The Characters, the next generation of comedians get a chance that only Netflix could offer: the opportunity to create their own 30-minute episodes and do whatever they want. No rules. No limits. Each comedian writes and appears in his/her episode, presenting a series of sketches that veer wildly fromBachelor parodies, to music videos, to biblical spoofs… all in the name of outlaw comedy.
The Characters debuts on March 11th.
