IMDb’s New Animated Series Sees Kelsey Grammer Helping a Therapist Treat Classic Movie Monsters
This animated comedy puts a fun spin on classic horror monsters.
IMDb has announced its first-ever scripted series, an animated show titled You’re Not a Monster. As reported by Deadline, You’re Not a Monster will star Kelsey Grammer as a former psychiatrist-turned-vampire who mentors his great-great grandson Max (Eric Stonestreet), a therapist who has inherited his practice. The casting of Grammer is especially amusing considering his famous role as psychiatric Dr. Frasier Crane on Cheers and its spinoff, Frasier.
Max Seward's patients really are the horrifying monsters they think they are ... because they really are horrifying monsters. But as this para-therapist struggles with his own demons - and his vampire great-grandfather who left him his practice - he learns that the only thing worse than being undead is being unloved.
Each episode of You’re Not a Monster is reported to be four to five minutes long and will feature Max’s therapy sessions with classic movie monsters such as Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, and Medusa. Additional voice talent includes Amy Sedaris (voice of BoJack Horseman’s Princess Carolyn), stand-up comedian Aparna Nancherla, Patton Oswalt (Blade: Trinity, voice of Remy in Pixar’s Ratatouille), and Ellie Kemper (The Office, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). The show was created and is written by Frank Lesser, a four-time Primetime Emmy Award winner known for his work on The Colbert Report.
You’re Not a Monster is set to release this fall, although there will be a preview and exclusive interview with the cast and screw hosted by Kevin Smith at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. This is set to take place on the IMDboat on July 20th, so keep an eye out for that if the show seems like something that floats your boat.
