Guest voice talent on the star-studded cartoon includes Paul Anderson, Samuel Barnett and Sacha Dhawan. Andy Cohen, Brad Goreski, Kelly Ripa, and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” stars Garcelle Beauvais, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp, Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna will play themselves.
“The Prince’s” spring debut was delayed in part because of Oprah Winfrey’s explosive interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in March, and due to Prince Philip’s death the following month.
This marks the second series that Janetti has in the works at HBO Max. It was previously announced that he and his husband, celebrity stylist Goreski, were working on the travel docuseries “Brad and Gary Go To…” at the streamer.
