Netflix’s ‘Jentry Chau vs. the Underworld’ Animated Series to Star Ali Wong

Netflix has just announced the all-star cast — led by executive producer Ali Wong — for its upcoming supernatural animated series from first time show runner Echo Wu, Jentry Chau vs. the Underworld!

Ali Wong stars as Jentry, a Chinese American teen living in a small Texas town, who finds out a demon king is hunting her for the supernatural powers she’s been working her whole life to repress. With the help of her weapons expert great-aunt and a millennia-old jiangshi (Chinese hopping vampire), Jentry must now fight an entire underworld’s worth of monsters while balancing the horrors of high school.

Wong stars alongside Bowen Yang, Lori Tan Chinn, Lucy Liu, Jimmy O. Yang, Sheng Wang, and Woosung Kim. She will also executive produce the series with Locke & Key’s Aron Eli Coleite and show runner Wu.

Other producers include Chris Prynoski (The Legend of Vox Machina), Shannon Prynoski (Fairfax), Antonio Canobbio (Arlo the Alligator Boy), and Ben Kalina (Big Mouth) will also executive produce from Titmouse.
