ANIMATION BREAKDOWN 2015: HBO's Animals

Live set from DJ Jenny Nono!

Join creators Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano along with executive producers Mark and Jay Duplass as they offer a sneak peak into the world of Animals.

Animals is an animated series that focuses on the downtrodden creatures native to Earth’s least-habitable environment: New York City. Whether it’s lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bedbugs in the midst of a midlife crisis, the awkward small talk, moral ambiguity and existential woes of non-human urbanites prove startlingly similar to our own.
