‘DeadEndia’ graphic novels made into Netflix animated series

Hamish Steele’s horror comedy graphic novel series is coming to TV.

DeadEndia is a beloved graphic novel series from creator, Hamish Steele. Its combination of comedy, heartbreak, and LGBTQ+ representation has resonated with readers. Netflix, in partnership with Blink Industries, is planning to develop a new 2-D animated program for the streaming service.

The story follows Barney, Norma, and a magical talking pug named Pugsley who work at an amusement park haunted house for the summer. Unfortunately, the theme park attraction also serves as a portal to hell. The trio work together along with their demon guide to the underworld multiplane, Courtney, to confront all sorts of supernatural threats and the most frightening thing of all: their first crushes.

The cast includes Zach Barack as Barney (Spider-Man: Far from Home), Kody Kavitha as Norma (Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Emily Osment as Courtney (Almost Family, The Kominsky Method), Alex Brightman as Pugsley (Beetlejuice The Musical), Clinton Leupp a.k.a. Miss Coco Peru as Pauline Phoenix (Will & Grace), Kenny Tran as Logs (Maybe Happy Ending) and Kathreen Khavari as Badyah (Marvel Rising, Insecure, Big Little Lies).

In a time when inclusion is important, DeadEndia features characters with an array of identities including the leads; Barney is transgender and Norma is neurodiverse. Look for the new horror comedy animated series to premiere globally sometime in 2021.
