The Awesomes Teaser: Seth Meyers Has Assembled a Team of SNL-Voiced Not-Superheroes

Seth Meyers has had a busy few years serving as SNL's head writer and "Weekend Update" anchor. However, that was nothing compared to his upcoming months when he'll start preparing to host Late Night while also still working at SNL. Added to that pile is The Awesomes, his new Hulu animated series he co-created with SNL and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon writer Mike Shoemaker. The show is about the greatest superhero team ever, after all the best people leave and they need to restaff with a bunch comically less-than heroes. The show features the voice talents of Ike Barinholtz, Rachel Dratch, Bill Hader, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, and more. It premieres August 1 and hopefully will be awe— wait for it —inspiring.
