Lisa Hanawalt’s distinct style is one of the things that makes an alcoholic horse actor isn’t your speed, Hanawalt’s got something else to show you.

Tuca & Bertie follows its titular pair of best friends, Tuca the toucan (Tiffany Haddish) and Bertie the songbird (Ali Wong) who’re just living their lives in the big city and getting accustomed to being 30-somethings. While Tuca and Bertie are both changing—finding romance and new careers—both of them long for the good old days when they used to wild out with one another and, like sensible buds, they make a point of trying to recapture some of that magic with varying degrees of success.

Hanawalt, who created the series, is joined by BoJack creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg who serves as executive producer, and the series is set to feature Steven Yuen, Nicole Byer, Tessa Thompson, Richard E. Grant, Reggie Watts, Tig Notaro, and Germain Fowler.

Tuca & Bertie hits Netflix May 3 in the U.S.
