Fox Greenlights Animated Comedy ‘Duncanville’

Thirteen Episodes Ordered for 2019-20 Season

Fox has ordered the animated family comedy “Duncanville” from Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation,” “Saturday Night Live”) and Mike and Julie Scully (“The Simpsons,” “The Carmichael Show”), all of whom are co-creators and executive producers on the series. Written by Mike and Julie Scully, “Duncanille” will feature the voices of Poehler, who will star as two characters, Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation,” “Angie Tribeca”) and Wiz Khalifa (“American Dad!,” “BoJack Horseman”). Thirteen episodes have been ordered, and the series is set to premiere during the 2019-2020 season.
The logline: 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.
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.
