Netflix has announced the series regulars to its new adult animated series, Inside Job, which is coming from Gravity Falls’ Shion Takeuchi and Alex Hirsch.

The cast was revealed as part of a sneak peek shown during Netflix’s Studio Focus Panel at the Annecy International Film Festival on Monday, with Lizzy Caplan, Christian Slater, Clark Duke, Andrew Daly, Bobby Lee, John DiMaggio, Tisha Campbell, and Brett Gelman named as series regulars on the show. It officially marks the first project under Takeuchi’s deal with the streaming giant.

The dysfunctional team fronting the series consists of Reagan Ridley (Lizzy Caplen) who is described as Cognito Inc’s antisocial tech genius and “office weirdo.” According to Netflix, Reagan would “rather disarm a nuclear bomb than engage in small talk” but believes “the world could be a better place if everyone just listened to her.” This includes her father, Rand Ridley (Christian Slater), the disgraced head of Cognito Inc who “got fired after a paranoid downward spiral” and “spends his unemployment plotting revenge, starting flame wars with Richard Dawkins, and being the worst roommate ever to his daughter.”

As difficult as this father-daughter relationship is, Brett Hand (Clark Duke) is sure to bring some positive energy to the workplace, as Netflix describes this “genetically handsome” character as “a deeply sweet, caring guy who just wants everyone to like him.” He apparently caught the eye of the Deep State because “his Greek years trained him to fit the psychological profile of the ultimate sheep.”

Even in a workplace filled with reptilian humanoid shapeshifters and psychic mushrooms, there must be a CEO and J.R. Scheimpough (Andrew Daly) is the “crafty executive” behind the high-flying job. Scheimpough is described as a schmoozer, the type of person who can “breeze through any ethical quandary with his signature cheerful smile.”

Scheimpough’s organization is also made up of Dr. Andre (Bobby Lee), “a free-spirited biochemist whose passion is experimenting with drugs, and sometimes, making them” when he isn’t out partying or using mind erasing spray on his colleagues. Hopefully, this isn’t the case for Glenn Dolphman (John DiMaggio), a “half-man, half-dolphin 100% conservative war hero” who is in charge of Cognito’s arsenal, and “loves America so much he willingly had his DNA spliced with a dolphin in an unwarranted military experiment.”

Gigi (Tisha Campbell) and Magic Myc (Brett Gelman) round out the team. Gigi is known as Cognito’s “fast-talking Head of Media Manipulation and Subliminal Messages and office gossip queen.” The gossip might leak before she gets to speak though, as Myc has the ability to tap into people’s minds being “a psychic subterranean mushroom creature from a hive mind deep within Hollow Earth.”

The series will follow the daily grind for these characters, including committing the world’s conspiracies, “from convoluted coverups to secret societies to masked orgy etiquette.” According to the synopsis, “Reagan thinks she can make a difference, if only she could manage her unhinged, manifesto-writing father, her irresponsible coworkers, and finally snag the promotion she’s been dreaming about.”

Inside Job comes from creator and showrunner Shion Takeuchi and executive producer Alex Hirsch. Takeuchi previously worked on Pixar’s Monsters University and Inside Out. She has also staffed on several animated series, including The Regular Show, and Gravity Falls, which was created for the Disney Channel by Hirsch, who signed a multi-year deal with Netflix in 2018.
