The upcoming animated show is set to premiere on September 30 and will follow the story of two young artists trying to find love in New York City:
“Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi and Kenya Barris join forces to present Entergalactic, an original, animated story about a young artist named Jabari — voiced by Mescudi — as he attempts to balance love and success. Finding the latter brings Jabari a step closer to the former, when moving into his dream apartment introduces him to his new neighbor, photographer it-girl, Meadow — voiced by Jessica Williams. An explosion of art, music, and fashion, Entergalactic takes place in the only city that can handle all three: New York.”
Joining Cudi and Williams is a star-studded cast comprised of Timothée Chalamet, Ty Dolla $ign, Laura Harrier, Vanessa Hudgens, Christopher Abbott, 070 Shake, Jaden Smith, Keith David, Teyana Taylor, Arturo Castro and Macaulay Culkin.
Fletcher Moules will serve as a director while Ian Edelman and Maurice Williams are the show’s writers. The three are also executive producers alongside Barris, Cudi, Karina Manashil and Dennis Cummings.
Entergalactic premieres September 30 on Netflix.
