ProductionEdit

DevelopmentEdit

On April 4, 2018, Netflix announced that they had given the production a straight-to-series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes. The series was created by Waco O'Guin and Roger Black.[2] Production company and animation studio Bento Box Entertainment was expected to produce the series alongside Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment.[1][3][4][5]

Alongside the initial series announcement, it was reported that Dana Snyder, Cedric Yarbrough, David Herman, Tom Kenny, Sarah Chalke, and Kyle Kinane had been cast in series regular roles.[1]

On July 25, 2018, the first trailer for the series was released alongside the announcement that it would premiere on August 31, 2018.[6]

ReceptionEdit

"Paradise PD" has a "Fresh" audience score of 64% on Rotten Tomatoes,[7] The show has thus far received mixed reviews from television critics. Florian Ques of Konbini said, “The most thrilling aspect of Paradise PD is its natural ability to slip in some real burns aimed at pop culture figures. The humor used to criticize them is very well-executed." [8] Others offered criticism aimed at the extreme gross out comedy and lack of likable characters, as well as resemblances to the creators' previous animated sitcom, Brickleberry. Joel Keller of Decider said, "If it were just a little bit funnier, we'd recommend it. But it's just not worth sitting through the many unfunny, dirty gags to get to the good stuff",[9] while Audra Schroeder of The Daily Dot pronounced, " Paradise PD is blunt-force humor without much emotional attachment."[10]
