Maria voices characters on numerous animated series including BoJack Horseman, Adventure Time, Legend of Korra, Puss in Boots, and PBS's Emmy-winning series Word Girl. She can also be heard voicing lead roles on Fox's upcoming Golan the Insatiable and Yahoo's upcoming Talking Tom & Friends. Maria recurred as DeBrie Bardeaux on Netflix's Arrested Development reboot, for which she was praised as "fantastic" (Entertainment Weekly) a "standout" (TIME) and "perhaps one of the high points of the entire new season" (Black Book Magazine). She also recurred on fX's critically-praised Louie, ABC's Fresh Off the Boat, and USA's Benched. Maria's new Netflix series, Lady Dynamite was created by Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development) and Pam Brady (South Park). It premieres in April 2016.
