Talkin' Bout 'Teenage Euthanasia'

What happens when a former runaway teen mom is accidentally resurrected in her family's funeral home, giving her a second chance to raise her now-teenage daughter? You get Adult Swim’s Teenage Euthanasia, of course!

PFFR and Atomic Cartoons worked together to bring you the show’s second season, and we’re thrilled to say that the show’s creators, Alyson Levy and Alissa Nutting, will be coming to this year’s Industry Conference to tell us all about it, alongside Atomic Cartoons’ Patrick Paradis (Atomic’s Animation Director) and Beccs Champagne (Story Director) 

Be sure to check out both seasons of Teenage Euthanasia, starring Jo Firestone, Maria Bamford, Bebe Neuwirth, and Tim Robinson; all episodes airing now on Adult Swim!
