DeadEndia is coming soon to Netflix. The animated series will feature the star of the Beetlejuice musical, Alex Brightman. The series is based on a series of graphic novels by Hamish Steele.
“DeadEndia is set in the space of a theme park and the haunted mansion that resides there. Barney, Norma, and magical talking-dog Pugsley are trying to balance their summer jobs with facing a barrage of supernatural forces—including demonic game show hosts and sleep-sucking witches. Courtney, a thousand-year-old demon, becomes their guide to the underworld multiplane.”
“DeadEndia is about terrifying demons, vengeful ghosts, and mysterious magic,” Steele said in a statement. “It is also about coming of age in a world that wasn’t made for you. It’s a drama about found family, identity, and making mistakes. And of course, it’s a laugh-out-loud comedy! I’ve always dreamed of making the show I needed as a lonely, horror-obsessed closeted gay kid and thanks to Netflix and our ridiculously talented, diverse, and representative writers room and crew, we have shot way past my dreams and into wildest fantasy territory!”
The voice series of the cast includes Brightman, Zach Barack, Kody Kavitha, Emily Osment, Clinton Leupp/Miss Coco Peru, Kenny Tran, and Kathreen Khavari.
