In a very competitive situation, with three major streaming services pursing, Apple has landed animated musical comedy Central Park, from 20th Century Fox TV, with a two-episode, 26-episode straight-to-series order.
The series comes from the creator/executive producer of the Emmy-winning Fox/20th TV animated comedy series Bob’s Burgers Loren Bouchard, who co-wrote it with the Bob’s Burgers‘ executive producer Nora Smith and actor-writer Josh Gad (Frozen). The show’s voice cast includes Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Titus Burgess, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Daveed Diggs and Kathryn Hahn.
Central Park tells the story of a how a family of caretakers, who live and work in Central Park, end up saving the park, and basically the world.
As a huge fan of Bob’s Burgers (binge-watching the first few seasons got me through the recovery of my appendectomy), I am absolutely in for this.
