IMDb, the website movie fans know as a reference source for details about films, TV shows and celebrities, announced that it is producing its first-ever scripted series. The animated show, “You’re Not a Monster,” is set to premiere this fall on IMDb and IMDb TV.
Kelsey Grammer, Eric Stonestreet, Aparna Nancherla, Ellie Kemper and Patton Oswalt are among the voice cast. The short-form series has a 10-episode order.
The show joins other IMDb original series now airing including “The IMDb Show,” “IMDbrief” and “Casting Calls.”
“‘You’re Not a Monster’ demonstrates that even classic movie monsters have emotional issues — because the only thing worse than being undead is being unloved,” IMDb says in its announcement. “Returning to the ‘therapist’s chair’ for the first time since ‘Frasier,’ Kelsey Grammer voices a former psychiatrist-turned-vampire in the series, who mentors his great-great grandson ‘Max’ (Eric Stonestreet), a therapist who has inherited his practice. In each 4 to 5 minute episode, Max treats classic monsters including Frankenstein, The Invisible Man and Medusa as they seek desperately needed therapeutic help.”
Rounding out the series cast are Aparna Nancherla as a demon receptionist, Ellie Kemper as a therapist who thinks Max is imagining everything, and Peter Grosz, Langston Kerman, Joel Kim Booster, Patton Oswalt, Adam Pally, Amber Ruffin, Amy Sedaris and Milana Vayntrub as monsters.
