Kat Dennings may be ditching Williamsburg for an adventure in outer space, but she’s still striving to make those dolla, dolla bills ya’ll.
The 2 Broke Girls alum has been cast in a lead role opposite wrestler-turned-actor John Cena in YouTube Red’s upcoming animated comedy Dallas & Robo, THR.com reports.
From the producers of BoJack Horseman, the eight-episode buddy comedy follows sassy space trucker Dallas (voiced by Dennings) and warrior-poet Robo (Cena) as they try and make a few dollars in the seedy world of interplanetary big-rigging, while navigating their way through cannibal bikers, rival space truckers and vending machine burritos.
Other actors lending their voices to the series include Jane Lynch (Glee), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Taran Killam (SNL), Clancy Brown (Sleepy Hollow), Nat Faxon (Friends From College?), Dana Snyder (Aqua Teen Hunger Force), Bree Williamson (One Life to Live) and AT&T Girl Milana Vayntrub (This Is Us).
Dallas & Robo is slated to premiere in 2018.
