Adjust Comment Print

Bouchard, Smith, and Gad penned the project, and Bouchard and Gad will executive produce with Brillstein Entertainment Partners. Variety reported today that Bob's Burger creator Loren Bouchard and 20 Century Fox are preparing new animated musical comedy series for Apple. The series is called Central Park, and is co-written by Josh Gad and Nora Smith in addition to Bouchard, and it follows a group of caretakers who live and work in the titular location in NY.

Already greenlit for two seasons, the series will follow a family of caretakers that work and live in the famous NY landmark.

Bouchard will remain busy; not only is Bob's Burgers continuing at FOX, but a movie has been in development for a while.

Apple has yet to unveil a platform for its upcoming content. The show got a two-season, 26-episode order.

Move over, Belcher family! The series will be helmed in the same studio that works on The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad! and Bob's Burgers, and formerly produced Futurama and King of the Hill.

The show's cast includes Josh Gad, Titus Burgess from Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Stanley Tucci, Kristen Bell, and others.

No word as yet on how long it's going to be before Apple starts distributing this new animated comedy series.
