Harley Quinn’s New Animated Show Promises Adult Comedy

The Joke Is On DC Now

Who doesn’t love Harley Quinn? She’s as lovable as she is tragic. The devoted and abused on-again, off-again girlfriend of the Joker has gone through all manner of phases over the course of her criminal career, though she’s never been given the chance to head her own TV series. At least until now. With the teaser trailer for her DC streaming service debut, fans of the Clown Prince of Crime’s ex were given quite the treat when she started dropping expletives, breaking fourth walls and sounding strangely like Penny from The Big Bang Theory. 

According to an article on IGN

Now that the DC Universe streaming service is moving full steam ahead, with the live-action Titans series debuting this month, IGN can confirm that Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco will executive produce and voice Harley Quinn in the previously announced animated series that will be headlined by the hugely popular character.

The show will depict what happens when Harley breaks off from the Joker and sets out to become the biggest villain there is, but even while it basically features all supervillains, Cuoco says to expect an animated “adult comedy.” At NYCC 2018, Warner Bros. Animation unveiled a special first look.

“This show is kind of a very cool, modern take on Harley Quinn,” says Cuoco. “She’s such an iconic character that we’re excited to bring a much brighter and kind of, even the animation is very bright and modern and hip. And the character is very edgy. The storyline is very edgy and it’s definitely not a child’s show! It’s an adult comedy — I have to make sure I tell people that! — which has been a blast to work on. I’ve never experienced anything like this before. It’s been kind of a really cool gig.”

Even if Titans turns out to be something of a drag, hopefully Harley’s little adventure will provide the laughs that the DC Universe so desperately needs right now.
