Netflix on Tuesday launched a teaser trailer for "BoJack Horseman," a Netflix original animated series it plans to launch in August. BoJack Horseman is a washed-up former Hollywood star who hasn't really done much in the 20 years since he rose to fame.

All he seems to do now is complain about stuff (literally, almost everything) and wear colorful sweaters. The trailer below suggests that "BoJack Horseman" will be a raunchy animated comedy similar to the likes of "Family Guy" and "American Dad."

Horseman is played by Canadian funnyman Will Arnett, who is joined by a star-studded crew including Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie from "Community," and Aaron Paul of "Breaking Bad" fame. "BoJack Horseman" launches August 22 in all Netflix territories, which includes the US and the UK.
