Simpson’s Producer to Create Exclusive Animation Series for Netflix
On a roll after a successful launch of recent launch of animation series Bojack Horseman, Netflix has now ordered a new series from some pretty big players in the world of comedy and TV animation. Firstly Simpson’s producer Michael Price is joining the team after a successful term at Fox producing The Simpsons which gained him a writers guild award and also an Emmy for his efforts too. He’s also been involved in Lego Star Wars, The PJs, Teen Angel and ABC’s Teacher’s Pet.
The new show is called ‘F For Family’ and like Bojack, is meant to be an adult styled show as it captures the writers childhood memories in six episodes of 30 minutes.
Expected to air sometime in 2015 the new series has a good lineup of voice actors including Bill Burr who’s on a hot streak at the moment with a great comedy tour alongside his roles in movies such as Date Night, The Heat, Stand Up Guys and not forgetting his role in Breaking Bad too.
Joining Bill is Laura Dern and Justin Long and joining the producing table is Vince Vaughn and Peter Billingsley. Vince Vaugn who’s known for his roles in The Internship, Wedding Crashers and The Break-Up has said that ‘We’re all excited to be working with Netfilx on this project.’
Also announced today is a new comedy special from Bill Burr which will be coming to Netflix exclusively on Friday, December 5th.
