Amazon orders 2 seasons of animated show ‘The Hospital’

Amazon has picked up the sci-fi animated comedy “The Hospital” for two seasons.

The series was originally reported as being in development at the streamer in early 2020. Maya Rudolph and Natasha Lyonne are part of the voice cast and will also executive produce under their Animal Pictures banner. Keke Palmer, Greta Lee, Kieran Culkin, and Sam Smith will also voice characters on the show.

“The Hospital” hails from Cirocco Dunlap, whose past credits include “Russian Doll,” “Big Mouth,” and “Miracle Workers.” The show follows Sleech and Klak—aliens, best friends, and intergalactically renowned surgeons—as they tackle anxiety-eating parasites, illegal time loops, and deep-space STIs. Risking their careers to take on a remarkable case, they put existence itself in jeopardy.

Additional cast members will be announced at a later date.
