This is the fourth, and final, week of this iteration of the Dodge Screening Series. Keep your eyes open for another Dodge Screening Series in the coming months, and make sure you go back and check out the other 3 films we highlighted as well as our alumni who contributed to their creation. The first week we highlighted BLINDSPOTTING, the second week we highlighted ROCK STEADY ROW, and last week we highlighted NEWNESS.
The Dodge Screening Series for this week is BOJACK HORSEMAN. This week we enlisted the help of one of the shows writers Kelly Galuska (BA/SW ’06) to help us introduce this animated series:
After starring in the popular sitcom “Horsin’ Around” in the late 80s and early 90s, BoJack Horseman struggles with his deteriorating popularity, depression, addiction, and maintaining the relationships with those he cares about, but can’t seem to stop hurting, all while living in the satirical, pun-filled city of Hollywood, California.
The series premiered on Netflix on August 22nd, 2014 and ended on January 31st, 2020 after six seasons with a total of 77 episodes. The series also recieved numerous accolades including four Critics Choice Television Awards for Best Animated Series, three Annie Awards, and two Writers Guild of America Awards. It was also nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards.
Kelly Galuska (BA/SW ’06) was a writer on seasons 2-5 of BOJACK HORSEMAN. The episodes that she wrote include; Hank After Dark (S2 Ep7), BoJack Kills (S3 Ep3), Underground (S4, Ep7), and Mr. Peanutbutter’s Boos (S5, Ep8). After graduating from Dodge, Kelly went on to work for, and write on, some prominent television shows including MOM, ARCHER, and most recently BIG MOUTH.
