Sarah Silverman and Seth Rogen are teaming up to voice a Christmas-themed adult animated comedy series for HBO Max.
The pair, who have previously starred together on Sarah Polley’s Take This Waltz, will star in Santa Inc. from Lionsgate and Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures.
The eight-episode series, featuring half-hour episodes, will be written by showrunner Alexandra Rushfield, an exec producer on Hulu’s Shrill and co-exec producer on Parks and Recreation.
Santa Inc. is the story of Candy Smalls (Silverman), the highest-ranking female elf in the North Pole. When the successor to Santa Claus (Rogen) is poached by Amazon on Christmas Eve, Candy goes for her ultimate dream— to become the first woman Santa Claus in the history of Christmas.
