Amazon Prime Video announced the voice cast of the upcoming adult animated comedy series Fairfax, including Skyler Gisondo, Kiersey Clemons, Peter S. Kim, and Jaboukie Young-White as the voice cast. The entire eight-episode series will premiere on 29 October, exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
Fairfax follows four middle school best friends on their never-ending quest for clout on Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles—the pulsing heart of hypebeast culture.
The Righteous Gemstones actor Skyler Gisondo voices Dale, an earnest, outdoorsy kid from Oregon, who is new to Los Angeles. He loves his dad and his fanny pack, and with his cargo shorts and hiking boots, he’s the accidental poster child for normcore.
Kiersey Clemons voices Derica, an aspiring model-slash-activist who is determined to save the planet in style. Clemons is best known for appearing in Hearts Beat Loud and The Flash.
The character Benny, a savvy sneakerhead on a mission for generational clout—right after he practices cello and walks the dog, is played by Peter S. Kim. Kim is best known as a writer on Fox’s Housebroken and was named a ‘New Face’ at the 2021 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival.
Jaboukie Young-White who appeared in The Daily Show and Dating & New York is the voice of Truman, a self-proclaimed ‘auteur’ filmmaker and a budding Casanova.
The guest cast of Fairfax also includes Pamela Adlon as Phyllis, Jeff Bottoms as The Plug, Yvette Nicole Brown as Trini, Rob Delaney as Grant and Zoey Deutch as Lily. We also have Colton Dunn as Principal Weston, John Leguizamo as Glenn the pigeon, Camila Mendes as Melody and Larry Owens as Jules.
Rest of the voice cast includes Linda Park as Joy, Billy Porter as Hiroki Hassan, Ben Schwartz as Cody, Tim Simons as Brian, and JB Smoove as Quattro the pigeon.
The first look of the Amazon original series has also been revealed.
The series is created and executive produced by longtime friends Matthew Hausfater, Aaron Buchsbaum, and Teddy Riley. Additional EPs include Jon Zimelis and Jason U. Nadler for Serious Business (@midnight); Peter A. Knight (Bojack Horseman); and Chris Prynoski, Ben Kalina, and Antonio Cannobio for Titmouse (Big Mouth).
The artist Somehoodlum, who designed the characters for the series, serves as a consulting producer alongside the pop/internet culture clothing and media brand Pizzaslime.
