Netflix has released the full, official trailer for Hoops, an extremely not-for-kids animated comedy starring national treasure Jake Johnson as a deadbeat high school basketball coach reaching for his hoop dreams. Archer writer Ben Hoffman created the series, with Phil Lord and Chris Miller on board as producers.
In addition to the trailer, Netflix also announced a few delightful guest voices, including Johnson’s former New Girl co-stars Max Greenfield, Damon Wayans Jr., and Hannah Simone, along with Will Forte, Nick Swardson, Sam Richardson, W. Earl Brown, and THE Mayor of Flavortown, Guy Fieri.
Hot dang, this thing looks like a blast. Netflix has become quite the destination for adult animated series, following Big Mouth, The Midnight Gospel, and Bojack Horseman. Certain Mummy movies notwithstanding Johnson is reliably great, especially when he’s playing exasperated and foul-mouthed, so voicing a desperate high school basketball coach who trips absolute balls on toad poison checks all the right boxes.
Check out the trailer below. Hoops debuts on Netflix on Friday, August 21.
