Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Richaro Ayoade (The IT Crowd, Disenchanted) and Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows) will star in the show, the network announced during its time in front of the Television Critics Association on Wednesday. Pam Murphy (Mapleworth Murders, Adam Ruins Everything) and Duncan Trussell (Netflix’s The Midnight Gospel) also star.
Krapopolis is set in ancient Greece and follows a family of humans, gods and monsters trying to run one of the world’s first cities. Ayoade plays Tyrannis, the mortal son of goddess Deliria (Waddingham) and the benevolent king of Krapopolis. Berry plays Shlub, Tyrannis’ father and “manitaur” — half centaur and half manticore.
Murphy will voice Stupendous, Tyrannis’ half-sister, a cyclops who is Deliria’s daughter. Trussell plays Hippocampus, Tyrannis’ half-brother, an offspring of Shlub and a mermaid.
Fox is touting Krapopolis as the first ever animated series to be “curated entirely on the blockchain.” To that end, the network has minted its first NFT of the cast (which looks just like the picture at the top of this post).
Harmon executive produces Krapopolis with showrunner Jordan Young (Bojack Horseman).
Waddingham is repped by Atlas Artists and Creative Artists Management; Ayoade by WME, PBJ Management and Independent Talent in the U.K.; Berry by CAA, MGMT Entertainment and Sam Fox at B-Side Management in the U.K.; Murphy by Buchwald and Artists First; and Trussell by Artists First and CAA.
