Rosa Salazar is getting animated…
The 32-year-old Latina actress will star in the adult animated show Undone, which has received a straight-to-series order from Amazon Studios.
Co-created by Bob-Waksberg and BoJack Horseman writer-producer Kate Purdy, Undone is a half-hour animated dramedy that explores the elastic nature of reality through its central character, Alma, voiced by Salazar.
After getting into a near fatal car accident, Alma discovers she has a new relationship with time and uses this ability to find out the truth about her father’s death.
Also cast in the series is Angelique Cabral (Life in Pieces) as Alma’s younger sister.
Undone is in pre-production and expected to premiere in 2019 on Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories.
Dutch artist Hisko Hulsing will oversee the production design and direct a team of animators working in the Netherlands. The animation will be done with Dutch co-producer and Amsterdam-based studio Submarine, and Austin-based studio Minnow Mountain.
Salazar will next be seen in the title role of the Robert Rodriguez-directed and co-written Alita: Battle Angel, which James Cameron co-wrote and is producing for Twentieth Century Fox. Additionally, she will be seen in upcoming films Bird Box and The Kindergarten Teacher.
