This was BoJack Horseman's attempt at breaking free from the image of his Horsin' Around character to do an "adult" show. The end result was quite cringe-inducing and disastrous. The ratings got so bad that they were considering bringing in the then-hot pop star Sarah Lynn as a guest star in the episode "Hello, Old Friend". The BoJack Horseman Show was originally a grittier show titled The Life and Loves of Mitch McFadden and His Family and Friends. It was, in one night, turned into The BoJack Horseman Show due to the drive to make the show into something that will be different from all the others and be remembered.
- BoJack refuses to discuss matters about The BoJack Horseman Show to this day.
- Character Actress Margo Martindale appears in the read-through, with a sign that says "Angel", implying that she is a character in The BoJack Horseman Show.
