Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson found herself attracted to Bean, the less-than-perfect princess at the center of Matt Groening’s animated comedy-fantasy series, Disenchantment.
“I would have auditioned for anything with Matt’s name on it. I didn’t know how great this would be,” said Jacobson in comments today during the Television Critics Association press tour. “Bean is a different princess. She’s flawed and gets fucked up. I find it so relatable.”
The 10-episode series, which debuts Aug. 17, follows the misadventures of Bean and the gang which are voiced by a notable cast of comedic actors. Jacobson is joined by Nat Faxon and Eric Andre voice Elfo and Luci respectively.
“It’s the role I was born to play,” said Andre, “He’s an instigator. He’s the literal and figurative devil on her shoulder, and I am a demon from hell in real life.
