Out of nowhere, Briggs signs on as a writer for Matt Groening’s upcoming Netflix series

A few days back Netflix announced a brand new original. Disenchantment is an upcoming animated series which will tell the tale of Bean, an alcoholic princess in her medieval kingdom Dreamland.

The series will be helmed by Matt Groening, the mastermind behind The Simpsons, and will star Abbi Jacobson, Nat Faxon and Eric Andre alongside a set of juicy cameos.

Today we learned that Briggs, intrepid Aussie rapper and one half of A.B. Original, is on the writing team.

Rapper, spokesperson and now writing protege: looks like Briggs will stop at nothing on his way to becoming Australia’s loudest voice.

We heard the news from a Facebook post which pictures Briggs alongside Groening, Bill Oakley, David X Coen and Josh Weinstein, apparently the full writing team for Disenchantment.


Additional cast members confirmed for Disenchantment include John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery. Animation is being done by Rough Draft Studios (Futurama).

I was excited for this series already (I’ll watch anything Groening touches), now I straight-up can’t wait.
