Apple Orders Animated Comedy 'Central Park' From 'Bob's Burgers' Creator

13 March 2018

Written by Bouchard with Josh Gad and Nora Smith, the show is about a family of caretakers who save the famous park as well as the world.

Apple continues to grow it series-programming slate, adding its first animated show. It's unclear why it chose to go with Apple instead of its own corporate entity.

Apple has moved aggressively into series development in recent months, despite having not yet unveiled a platform for its new content.

Variety notes that this is a unique move for 2oth Century Fox to sell one of its animated series as it has held on to most of its popular content like The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad!

This is indeed a rare sale of an animated comedy by the studio outside the larger Fox corporate family. The show's voice cast includes Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Titus Burgess, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Daveed Diggs and Kathryn Hahn.

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

After Fox ultimately passed on Central Park, 20th TV took the project out, sparking a heated bidding war among Apple, Netflix and Hulu.
