Available from September 13, 2019
Amazon Prime Undone Season 1 is a half-hour, genre-bending, animated dramedy that explores the elastic nature of reality through its central character, Alma, a twenty-eight-year-old living in San Antonio, Texas.
Before the screening of first two episodes of Undone in Austin, Texas, at ATX Television Festival, series executive producers and creators Kate Purdy and Bob-Waksberg, along with Hisko Hulsing (the production designer), claimed to the media about the genesis of Undone, which took place around the second season of BoJack. Purdy’s grandma was schizophrenic and she always in a panic that it might happen to her too. After suffering from a breakdown, Purdy began searching for options to mental health cure, which led her to Eastern healers, medicine, and shamans. It also made her mull over about mental health in a new manner.

“We believed that might be an actually interesting method to explore a series,” she claims. “Somebody’s own view of reality, seeing at reality, and how it can be supple on the basis of insights of what is normal and what is genuine and what is OK.”
Purdy is accountable for some of BoJack’s most loved episodes, comprising “Time’s Arrow,” which features BoJack’s mom’s fight with dementia. But Bob-Waksberg highlights another of her episodes as the beginning point for Undone.
“I believe some of the earliest charts about this series were like, ‘Okay, what if we did a series that began from here,’” he claims. “Like, rather than investing the entire season to build that, that was the starting and we developed from here.” He claims that “portion of the pitch was, ‘Is this United States of Tara or is this The Matrix?’ And the answer is, sort of a mixture of the two.”
Amazon Prime Undone Season 1 Review
Odenkirk takes on a dual role in the web series, leading Alma on a quest to undo his demise, and with this new frame of insight, she begins to review other relations. The Undone animation is lush but modest, but that only adds to the skewed insights. Hulsing’s “painterly” method is immersive and subtle, with his oil paintings offering backgrounds to the series. If Undone seems a lot similar to A Scanner Darkly, it is because Hulsing was helped by Austin’s Minnow Mountain in rotoscoping the live actors. This is the same animation team who worked on groundbreaking 2006 movie and the Emmy-winning doc Tower. It is the first time that type of animation has been conveyed to the small screen.
