Netflix is adding to its slate of animated shows with a series order for a project from the team behind “BoJack Horseman.”

The streamer describes the new series, “Tuca & Bertie,” as “a comedy about the friendship between two 30-year-old bird women who live in the same apartment building: Tuca, a cocky, care-free toucan, and Bertie, an anxious, daydreaming songbird.”

Tiffany Haddish will voice Tuca in the series, which is produced by Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company.

The series, created by Lisa Hanawalt (“BoJack Horseman”) has a 10-episode order for its first season.

Hanawalt is an executive producer alongside Raphael Bob-Waksberg (“BoJack Horseman”), Noel Bright (“BoJack Horseman,” “Friends”), Steven A. Cohen (“BoJack Horseman,” “Jack & Bobby”) and Haddish.

The animation is being done at Shadowmachine.
