In the coming months, Shepparton’s Adam Briggs’ dream job will hit local television screens.
Briggs raps and writes with the award-winning group AB Original, but has also written for and starred in ABC TV shows, including Black Comedy and The Weekly with Charlie Pickering.
Last year, Briggs announced Twitter had helped him land his dream role, working as one of the writers on The Simpsons and Futurama creator Matt Groening’s new show Disenchantment.
Bought by Netflix, the streaming service said the first 10 episodes would be released on August 17.
With 20 episodes in total, the adult animated comedy will be released in two stages.
In Disenchantment, viewers will be taken to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, where they will follow the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo and her personal demon Luci.
Along the way, the oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses and lots of human fools.
The series will feature the voice talents of Abbi Jacobson (Bean), Nat Faxon (Elfo) and Eric Andre (Luci), along with John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding and Lucy Montgomery.
Animation is being done by Rough Draft Studios.
On Instagram this week, Briggs let his fans know what he had been working on and the series’ release date.
