Carol & The End of the World stars Martha Kelly (Euphoria, Baskets) as a woman facing the apocalypse. The official description reads: “With a mysterious planet hurtling towards Earth, extinction is imminent for the people of the world. While most feel liberated to pursue their wildest dreams, one quiet and always uncomfortable woman stands alone — lost among the hedonistic masses.”
Says Guterman: “Carol & The End Of The World is a love letter to routine. A show about the comforts of monotony. An animated and existential comedy about the daily rituals that make up the gaps that make up a life.”
In addition to Kelly, the voice cast includes Beth Grant (No Country For Old Men), Lawrence Pressman (Modern Family), Kimberly Hébert Gregory (Craig of the Greek), Mel Rodriguez (Onward), Bridget Everett (Somebody Somewhere), Michael Chernus (Severance) and Delbert Hunt (Monster High).
The project is executive produced by Guterman — who penned the episodes “The Ricks Must Be Crazy” and “Interdimensional Cable 2: Tempting Fate” for the Adult Swim series — and Donick Cary (The Simpsons), along with Bardel Entertainment producing.
Carol & The End Of The World will consist of 10 half-hour episodes that will premiere Dec. 15 on Netflix.
