This weekend I had the opportunity to do something I’ve wanted to do for a long time: record VO for an animated TV show. The show is a pilot presentation titled GEN ZED and it’s the first animated show to star a trasngender actress. Julie Rei Goldstein voices Shona, a transgender Millenial trying to find her own way in the world. She and her three friends Cameron (Kevyn Richmond), Betsy (Emily Chang) and Huey (Me!) decide that life can be pretty hard on your own so they get a small apartment and room together. Veteran character actor Marcell Tubert voices their landlord Miguel.
The show is created by Hayden Black (creator of Goodnight Burbank) and he describes it as a cross between British shows Spaced and The Young Ones. I think it has the potential to be really special and I’m really excited to be a part of it.
I’ll be posting more updates here but you can also follow the show’s progress (and help spread the word, so please follow and like!) on the following:
