IMDb announced its first-ever animated series: You’re Not a Monster.
You’re Not a Monster demonstrates that even classic movie monsters have emotional issues – because the only thing worse than being undead is being unloved.
Returning to the “therapist’s chair” for the first time since Frasier, Kelsey Grammer voices a former psychiatrist-turned-vampire in the series, who mentors his great-great grandson “Max” (Eric Stonestreet), a therapist who has inherited his practice. In each 4 to 5 minute episode, Max treats classic monsters including Frankenstein, The Invisible Man and Medusa as they seek desperately needed therapeutic help.
“Monsters are people, too,” said Grammer, who serves as executive producer of the series and has voiced popular characters in projects including Gary the Rat, Storks, Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia and several decades as “Sideshow Bob” on The Simpsons.
Rounding out the series cast is Aparna Nancherla as a demon receptionist, Ellie Kemper as a therapist who thinks Max is imagining everything, and Peter Grosz, Langston Kerman, Joel Kim Booster, Patton Oswalt, Adam Pally, Amber Ruffin, Amy Sedaris and Milana Vayntrub as hideous monsters.
Fans will get a sneak peek of the 10-episode, short-form series when its trailer premieres on the IMDboat at Comic-Con International: San Diego as well as seeing show creators and cast members participate in an exclusive interview with host Kevin Smith. Full episodes will premiere this fall!
The show joins other IMDb original series now airing including “The IMDb Show,” “IMDbrief” and “Casting Calls.”
