Amazon Announces Premiere Date for Animated Comedy 'The Second Best Hospital in the Galaxy'

Amazon has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original animated comedy series The Second Best Hospital in the Galaxy (formerly The Hospital).

All 8 episodes of the first season will be available on Friday, February 23. The comedy has already been renewed for a second season. 

The series follows Dr. Sleech and Dr. Klak - aliens, best friends, and intergalactically renowned surgeons - as they tackle anxiety-eating parasites, illegal time loops, and deep-space STIs. In the first season, doctors Sleech and Klak take on a highly dangerous and potentially groundbreaking case and, in doing so, put existence itself in jeopardy. Although considering their dismal personal lives, oblivion might be an improvement.

The voice cast features Maya Rudolph, Natasha Lyonne, Keke Palmer, Kieran Culkin, Sam Smith and Stephanie Hsu.

Cirocco Dunlap created the series. She executive produces with Rudolph, Lyonne, Danielle Renfrew Behrens, Shauna McGarry, Shannon Prynoski, Chris Prynoski, Antonio Canobbio and Ben Kalina. Amazon MGM Studios, Animal Pictures and Titmouse Studios produce.
