Netflix is bringing in some powerhouse talent for its latest foray into animated comedy. The popular streaming service has ordered a new series titled Bad Crimes from television veterans Greg Daniels, Mike Judge, and Nicole Silverberg. The show, which will star Netflix mainstays Nicole Byer and Lauren Lapkus in the lead roles, will center around the misadventures of two FBI agents who travel across the country to solve grisly murders while juggling their friendship, career ambitions, and a host of romantic suitors.
Bad Crimes will serve as the latest in a long line of successful collaborations from Daniels and Judge, who previously co-created the hit comedy King of the Hill for Fox. This is also not the first time Byer and Lapkus have worked side-by-side, as the pair currently host a podcast together called Newcomers. Every name involved with this project comes backed by an impressive resume.
Aside from the previously mentioned King of the Hill, Daniels is known for developing cultural phenomena on NBC with The Office and Parks & Recreation. Judge is a legend in his own right, having created both Beavis and Butt-Head for MTV and Silicon Valley for HBO and directing the cult favorite comedy film Office Space in 1999. Silverberg is a promising new writer on the scene, fresh off her work on TBS’ Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. As for the voice acting talent, Byer is perhaps most well-known for her hosting gig on Netflix’s Nailed It! while Lapkus gained notoriety for her long-running role on the service’s hit series Orange is the New Black.
