Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis is set to star in a new animated show based on the comic book series Hellicious, Variety reports.

The project is currently in development with TBS, with Kiedis also set to be an executive producer.

Kiedis plays the character Briggy Bundy, a “rock-goth icon” who finds himself in Hell after his soul is stolen by Cherry, the “precocious 7-year-old granddaughter” of the oneand-only Devil.

A premiere date for Hellicious has yet to be announced.

Kiedis already has several acting credits to his name, including a role in 1991’s Point Break. He’ll have a long way to go to match the filmography of Peppers bandmate Flea, who’s been in movies such as Back to the Future II and III, The Big Lebowski and last year’s Babylon.

In addition to making his way onto your TV, Kiedis has been traveling the U.S. on RHCP’s current U.S. tour supporting the band’s two 2022 albums, Unlimited Love and Return of the Dream Canteen. The outing continues Thursday, April 6, in Fargo, North Dakota.
