Featuring the voices of Lisa Kudrow, Will Forte, Clea DuVall, Nat Faxon, Sharon Horgan, Tony Hale, Sam Richardson and Jason Mantzoukas, animated comedy HOUSEBROKEN follows a group of neighborhood pets and stray animals as they work through their issues inside and outside their therapy group.
HONEY (Emmy Award winner Lisa Kudrow, “Friends,” “The Comeback”) opens her living room for the group to come and support each other through the misery, mayhem and majesty that is being a pet. Honey also struggles with her own problems, such as her arranged (by her human) marriage with CHIEF (Academy Award winner Nat Faxon, “The Descendants,” “The Way Way Back”), a sloppy St. Bernard who enjoys eating socks and licking himself.
The group includes SHEL (Emmy Award nominee Will Forte, “The Last Man on Earth,” “Nebraska”), a sex positive tortoise with intimacy issues and a knack for choosing unconventional partners; TABITHA (Emmy Award nominee Sharon Horgan, “Catastrophe”), an aging Persian cat beauty queen, trying to adjust to life off the cat show circuit; THE GRAY ONE (Jason Mantzoukas, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “The Good Place”), a street smart cat who lives with about 30 other cats and has his one eye on Tabitha; CHICO (Screen Actors Guild Award winner Sam Richardson, “Veep”), a chonky, co-dependent and very naive cat; and the group’s newest member, DIABLO (Emmy Award winner Tony Hale, “Veep,” “Arrested Development”), an anxious, sweater-wearing terrier whose OCD causes him to hump everything twice.
Among the group’s other members are ELSA (Screen Actors Guild Award winner Clea DuVall, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Veep”), a power hungry, know-it-all Corgi and fake service dog, who drives Honey crazy; NIBBLES (guest voice Bresha Webb, “The Last O.G.”), a psychopathic hamster who is mourning the loss of her mate (whose face she ate…and everyone knows it); MAX (Hale), George Clooney’s pig, a former actor and current status-obsessed a-hole; BUBBLES (guest voice Greta Lee, “Russian Doll”), a horny, teenage goldfish who lives with Honey and Chief, and heckles the animals any chance she gets; TCHOTCHKE, a silent, and possibly magical, slow loris with a mysterious past, who uses a tiny cocktail umbrella to express his emotions; and JILL (guest voice Maria Bamford, “Big Mouth,” “BoJack Horseman”), Honey and Chief’s human owner. But who cares? This is about animals.
HOUSEBROKEN is an irreverent look at human behavior, but told through the filter of a quirky group of neighborhood pets. Throughout the series, the show centers on the pets’ dysfunctional relationships and their skewed world view, while exploring relevant societal issues in fun and unique ways.
