Netflix has released trailers for two of their upcoming original series. The first is “Tuca and Bertie,” an animated comedy which hails from “BoJack Horseman” producer Lisa Hanawalt.
The story deals with the friendship between two thirty-year-old bird women who live in the same apartment building: Tuca (Tiffany Haddish), a cocky, care-free toucan, and Bertie (Ali Wong), an anxious, daydreaming songbird. That launches on May 3rd following its global premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Netflix has also unveiled a global teaser for its first Arabic original series, the young adult fantasy drama “Jinn” which has set a release of June 13th.
The story focuses on young Arab teenagers whose lives are disrupted when a spiritual figure appears in front of them in the ancient city of Petra. They must try and stop Jinn from destroying the world. Elan and Rajeev Dassani (“Theeb,” “Justified”) serve as executive producers.
