With the summer season fast approaching, most shows are lapsing into reruns until the fall, leaving audiences hungry for new and interesting content. And that’s where the good people at FEARnet come into play, as they ready their new animated horror/comedy series, Mari-Kari. And we’ve got an early look today, just for you!
The comedy will be voiced by Brenda Walsh herself, Shannen Doherty, and will make its bow on June 3, with subsequent new episodes premiering in pairs every Thursday in June on FEARnet. Dig on the synopsis below, and keep scrolling for your exclusive look at the titular characters!
“Mari-Kari” begins with Mari’s return to school after the recent and unexplained death of her sister, Kari. Calamity and hilarity ensue as the revenge-minded Kari unleashes her wrath on everyone who torments and teases her sweet-natured sister. Set in the ordinary world of Mari, viewers see how her supernatural sisterly bond affects her life at home, at school, on the bus, at the mall – and how her life and her sister’s lack of one makes them a very scary pair. Their close relationship has a dire effect on anyone who has the ill fate of coming between them.
The animated series’ tongue-in-cheek action unfolds over eight, 1-2 minute episodes built in flash and inspired by Japanese anime. Jody Schaeffer is the director as well as the writer and creator. Executive producers are Austin Reading and Jim Burns. Keith Fay also serves as a writer for the series.
