Fox greenlighted a new series from “Saturday Night Live” and “Parks and Recreation” star Amy Poehler and Mike and Julie Scully (“The Simpsons”). The animated series, “Duncanville,” will premiere during the 2019-2020 season.
“The series centers on the life of Duncan, a spectacularly average 15-year-old boy, his family and friends. Poehler will provide the voice of Duncan and his high-strung mom, Annie, who is constantly trying to prevent her son from ruining his life,” Fox says in the announcement.
Along with Poehler, Rashida Jones and Wiz Khalifa will voice characters in the comedy, which has a 13-episode order.
“‘Duncanville’ is one of the freshest animated concepts we’ve seen, and has an insane pedigree of comedic talent across the board,” said Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “We’ve enjoyed a long, incredible run with Mike and Julie, and everything Amy does is pure genius. Having the voice talents of Rashida and Wiz join her makes this show the complete package.”
Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Universal Television, “Duncanville” was co-created by Mike and Julie Scully and Amy Poehler, through her Paper Kite Productions, who executive produce with Dave Becky of 3 Arts Entertainment.
