Insecure star Natasha Rothwell to star in and executive produce Malltown, Comedy Central’s new animated pilot. Rothwell will voice the shows’ main character, 13-year-old Libby.
Set in a declining mall, Malltown follows the coming-of-age adventures of Libby. Seen through the eyes of the budding teen, the mall is a microcosm of America and everything that’s totally screwed up about it.
The animated pilot hails from Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer and has been in development since 2018.
Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer, and Mike Perry will also executive produce the project. This project will be Jacobson and Glazer’s latest collaboration with Comedy Central as they both starred in the network’s hit sitcom Broad City which ran on-air for five seasons from 2014-2019.
You can currently see Natasha Rothwell as Kelli in HBO’s comedy-drama series Insecure. She also serves as one of the show’s writers. The show is in its fourth season. She recently starred in Paramount Pictures’ Sonic the Hedgehog film and will next be in the highly-anticipated DC film sequel Wonder Woman 1984.
