“Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul will lend his voice to a new animated comedy series for online steaming service Netflix.

Will Arnett and Amy Sedaris will also voice characters in Bojack Horseman, A Tale of Fear, Loathing and Animals, a cartoon about the life of a washed-up TV horse.

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos says, “Bojack Horseman is a brutally funny and unique take on what can happen after pop stardom. Raphael (Bob-Waksberg, series creator) has created an amazing set of characters voiced by some of the best comics and actors in the world.”

The 12-episode series is due to launch internationally on Netflix next year.
