Amazon has released a teaser for its new animated series, Undone. The series comes from Bojack Horsman showrunner Raphael Bob-Waksberg and writer Kate Purdy but if you're expecting a visual experience in line with the Netflix series about a washed-up 1990s sitcom star who happens to be an anthropomorphic horse, you are going to be surprised. The teaser for Undone reveals a series with both a unique, dreamy visual appeal as well as an intriguing story as well.
Undone stars Rosa Salazar as Alma, a young woman who, after surviving a near-fatal car accident, begins to have visions of her late father Jacob (Bob Odenkirk) and thus, discovers she as a new relationship with time -- and sets Alma on a quest to travel through space and time to prevent his death, a quest that "challenges Alma's relationships and brings into question her mental wellbeing with those closest to her."
To create the dreamy, reality-bending look of Undone, the series employs a mix of rotoscope animation of the live-action performances with oil painting background. According to TVLine, it's a process that has never been used to create episodic television. You can get a taste of how it comes together in the short video you can check out above.
In addition to Salazar and Odenkirk, Undone will Daveed Diggs (black-ish), Angelique Cabral (Life in Pieces), Constance Marie (Switched at Birth) and Siddarth Dhananjay (Patti Cake$). Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf), Jon Corbett (Sex and the City), Jeanne Tripplehorn (Big Love), and Sheila Vand (24: Legacy) will guest star.
The series screened its first two episodes at the ATX TV Festival in Austin, Texas last Saturday. Undone, which was given a straight-to-series order for one season last March, currently does not have an official release date, but is expected to debut on Amazon sometime in late 2019.
