Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video and Amazon’s Audible have struck a deal to create multiple audio-only original comedy programs for Audible listeners, Variety has learned, starting with an absurdist medieval series created by “Saturday Night Live” star Kate McKinnon and her sister Emily Lynne.

“Heads Will Roll” is the first of Audible and Broadway Video’s joint endeavors. Described as a “workplace comedy that takes place in a medieval castle,” the 10-episode audio show started out as a passion project of McKinnon and Lynne’s, Broadway Video head Britta von Schoeler told Variety.

McKinnon plays Queen Mortuana, an evil queen who must contend with a peasant uprising. Lynne stars alongside her as JoJo, the queen’s raven sidekick. The series features about 90 characters in all, including some very famous voices.

Think Tim Gunn as the queen’s army general, Meryl Streep as an outspoken actress aiding the peasant rebellion, Audra McDonald as the queen’s frenemy, a flurry of McKinnon’s “SNL” castmates, the Fab Five from “Queer Eye,” plus Peter Dinklage as “a prince who has a bird fetish,” aka a love interest to Lynne’s character.

“We’re so excited to collaborate with Audible and Broadway Video and be part of the recent explosion of audio,” said McKinnon and Lynne jointly via email. “We grew up playing music and doing voices together and we had the time of our lives using this medium to build a fantasy world that could be as big as we wanted it to be.”
