CBR has exclusive photos from AMC’s stop-motion animated comedy series Ultra City Smiths, featuring everything from a red light district to wrestling.
Two detectives confront rampant crime and corruption in a missing persons case leading to hilarious results in AMC’s new original animated comedy series Ultra City Smiths.
Using stop-motion animation with dolls similar to Team America: World Police Y Thunderbirds, the series will delve into decidedly mature humor when a pair of detectives set out to clean up Ultra City. Below, several exclusive images show the Ultra City red light district, Andrea the Giant’s (Bebe Neuwirth) wrestling action, and a musical number. (Each of the six episodes of the first season continues a comical sequence of songs and dances.)
The series stars Jimmi Simpson and Da’Vine Joy Randolph as police detectives David Mills and Gail Johnson, who seek to locate missing mayoral candidate Carpenter K. Smith, played by Kurtwood Smith. As the two detectives investigate the disappearance, they find that their case is linked to some particularly sinister figures in the city.
With David and Gail’s investigation taking them everywhere from backroom wrestling matches to their district congressman, Ultra City Smiths is ready to make you laugh as it parodies the entire procedural crime drama genre.
Created by Steve Conrad, Ultra City Smiths stars Kurtwood Smith, Kristen Bell, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Bebe Neuwirth, and more. The series premieres July 22 on AMC +.
