Zac Efron and Anna Kendrick to Star in Facebook Watch Animated Comedy 'Human Discoveries'

Zac Efron (Neighbors) and Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect) will star in and executive produce Facebook Watch's upcoming original animated comedy Human Discoveries. The new project will premiere later in 2019.

The animated comedy tells the story of a group of friends living at the dawn of human civilization. They're the first to discover necessities like fire and the wheel, but together they also stumble onto humanity's best and worst innovations, including art, alcohol, fashion, racism, small talk and - much to their confusion - monogamy.

The voice cast also includes Lamorne Morris, Jillian Bell, Paul Scheer and Lisa Kudrow.

Chris Bruno and David Howard Lee created the comedy. They will executive produce with Efron, Kendrick, Kirk J. Rudell, Jason Barrett and Mike Simkin. ShadowMachine and Ninja's Runnin' Wild Productions will produce.
