Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman & Anton Yelchin will headline the voice cast of Trollhunters, the upcoming Netflix animated series from creator and executive producer Guillermo del Toro and DreamWorks Animation. The family event series will premiere in December 2016. Del Toro made the announcement today at the Annecy Animation Festival in Annecy, France during a career retrospective discussion.

Trollhunters features a tale of two fantastical worlds set to collide in an epic saga. Set in the fictional suburb of Arcadia, our unlikely hero, Jim (Yelchin), and his two best friends make a startling discovery that beneath their hometown lies a hidden battle between good trolls and bad, the outcome of which will impact their lives forever.

Yelchin’s Jim is an ordinary teenage boy whose discovery of a mystical amulet sets his life on a course filled with high-stakes adventure. Grammer plays Blinky, a kind-hearted troll who befriends Jim; and Perlman provides the voice of Bular, a sinister troll who targets Jim and his friends for battle.

The 10-episode straight-to-series drama is based on the Stephen King best-seller and hails from showrunner David E. Kelley. The Sonar-produced project will premiere in 2018.

AT&T’s Audience Network is adding another high-profile scripted drama to its roster.

The home of originals including Kingdom has handed out a 10-episode straight-to-series order for David E. Kelley’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Brendan Gleeson and Anton Yelchin have been tapped to star in the project produced by Sonar Entertainment. Mr. Mercedes will premiere in 2018 on both DirecTV and AT&T Uverse.

Mr. Mercedes centers on a demented killer who taunts a retired police detective with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he can strike again. Gleeson will play Detective Bill Hodges, a retired cop who is driven out of retirement after an old nemesis reappears, while Yelchin will portray Brady Hartsfield, a mentally deranged ice cream truck driver and IT worker for Cyber Patrol (aka Geek Squad) who is secretly the Mercedes Killer.
