We have no way of knowing how much horror is going to be present in the series but we thought you’d like to hear that FOX has formally ordered an animated comedy set in mythical ancient Greece from Emmy Award-winning creator Dan Harmon (“Rick and Morty,” “Community”), which will premiere sometime in 2022.
“Centered on a flawed family of humans, gods and monsters that tries to run one of the world’s first cities without killing each other, the series is an outgrowth of the direct animation deal Harmon and FOX Entertainment unveiled last year. Wholly owned and financed by FOX Entertainment and to be produced by FOX’s Emmy Award-winning animation studio, Bento Box Entertainment, the project also is the first series to move forward under FOX’s broadcast direct model.”
“Leave it to Dan Harmon to turn the mythos of early Greek civilization into remarkably sharp commentary on today’s politics, celebrity and pop culture,” said FOX’s Michael Thorn. “This project is an incredibly irreverent family comedy as told by one of the town’s most inventive storytellers. We are proud to be partnered with Dan on this series, which strengthens our hold on the animation space and, as we continue to build FOX Entertainment, marks an important first step for us with our first fully owned scripted property.”
Voice casting is currently underway and will be announced in the coming months.
