Netflix has commissioned the new animated comedy series “Chicago Party Aunt” for adults based on the popular Twitter account.
Created by Chris Witaske, the account offers entertaining axioms from your favorite ‘vodka aunt’ who’s partying well into her 40s as if she’s still a young twenty-something.
Witaske, Jon Barinholtz and Katie Rich create and executive produce the series, which will consist of sixteen half-hour episodes divided into two separate premiere blocks.
Lauren Ash leads the cast as Diane Dunbrowski, who continues to be the party’s life and has an inability to “grow” though with a heart of gold. Rory O’Malley plays his gay nephew who moves in with her while attending Stanford University.
RuPaul Charles plays Gideon, a local who transforms Diane’s local barbershop into a New York-style hip salon. Jill Talley plays as Diane’s sister and Daniel’s mother Bonnie, who is a type A control freak. Ike Barinholtz plays her sweet and dorky suburban Mark.
Jon Barinholtz is Diane’s son gentle and not so bright giant son Mikey. Da’Vine Joy Randolph is Diane’s employee who helps keep her festive party in check. Katie Rich is a Polish immigrant and salon worker Zuzana. Witaske will play Diane’s TSA agent ex-husband Kurt, who retains a soft spot for her.
Titmouse (“Big Mouth”, “Human Resources”) serves as the animation studio, while Matt Craig (“New Looney Tunes”) will participate as the showrunner.
The first block of eight episodes premiered on September 17th.
