AMC+’s latest comedy will venture into the adult animation genre with the stop-motion series Ultra City Smiths. The new half-hour, animated baby doll series was created by Steve Conrad, who will also serve as the showrunner, and Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the studio behind Robot Chicken. Ultra City Smiths covers the investigation into the mysterious disappearance of Ultra City’s most famous magnate by two intrepid detectives. As the partners delve deeper and deeper into the case, they must work together to fight against the city’s growing corruption in order to make Ultra City safe for their friends and families. The series features as all-star voice cast, including Dax Shepard, Jimmi Simpson, Kristen Bell, John C. Reilly, Bebe Neuwirth, Luis Guzman, Alia Shawkat, Damon Herriman, and of all people, Debra Winger.

The trailer gives audiences a first-hand look into Ultra City and its ensemble, which engages with a satirical tone of typical hardboiled detective noir. But the baby dolls are decently terrifying, looking more like American Girl dolls coming to life. Certainly owing much to Matt Stone and Trey Parker‘s Team America: World Police, the physical comedy of watching baby dolls strip, murder and other debasing acts is really quite funny. The trailer plays the contrast between the seriousness of the story and the silliness of the medium wonderfully, utilizing intense action music as a backdrop for the dolls smoking and drinking their way through the narrative. It’s enough to make this show worth a watch, and the crazy good cast doesn’t hurt.
