Amazon Studios Greenlights First Half-Hour Animated Series "Undone" from Michael Eisner's Tornante Company and Acclaimed Creators Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Kate Purdy

Direct-to-Series show slated to star Rosa Salazar (Alita: Battle Angel) and is expected to premiere in 2019 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories, exclusively for Prime Members

SEATTLE - March 6, 2018 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon Studios today announced it has greenlit Undone - a direct-to-series animated show co-created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg (BoJack Horseman) and recent Writers Guild Award winner Kate Purdy (BoJack Horseman). The series is in pre-production and expected to premiere in 2019 on Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories exclusively for Prime Members.

Undone is a half-hour animated dramedy that explores the elastic nature of reality through its central character, Alma, slated to be played by Rosa Salazar (Alita: Battle Angel). After getting into a near fatal car accident, Alma discovers she has a new relationship with time and uses this ability to find out the truth about her father's death. Also slated to join the cast is Angelique Cabral (Life in Pieces) as Alma's younger sister.

Undone will be produced by Michael Eisner's Tornante Company with Noel Bright (BoJack Horseman), Steven A. Cohen (BoJack Horseman), and Tommy Pallotta (A Scanner Darkly) executive producing along with Bob-Waksberg and Purdy. Critically-acclaimed Dutch artist Hisko Hulsing (Montage of Heck) will oversee the production design and direct a team of animators working in the Netherlands. The animation will be done with Dutch co-producer and Amsterdam-based studio Submarine, and Austin-based studio Minnow Mountain.

"We're delighted to greenlight our first animated half-hour series," said Sharon Yguado, Head of Scripted Series, Amazon Studios. "Kate and Raphael are dynamic and creative forces, and I know they will create an amazing series for us. I can't wait for our customers to see it in 2019."

"We are grateful to Amazon Studios for the opportunity to tell Alma's story and follow her as she seeks to find a deeper meaning to her existence," said Purdy. Bob-Waksberg added, "Hisko's beautiful artwork and masterful use of light and color will create a look never seen before on a television show that will make audiences lose their minds."
