“The Great North” from 20th Television follows the Alaskan adventures of the Tobin family, as a single dad, BEEF (Nick Offerman, “Parks and Recreation,” “Making It”), does his best to keep his bunch of kids close – especially his only daughter, JUDY (Jenny Slate, “Bob’s Burgers”), whose artistic dreams lead her away from the family fishing boat and into the glamorous world of the local mall. Rounding out the family are Judy’s older brother, WOLF (Will Forte, The Last Man on Earth”); his fiancé, HONEYBEE (Dulcé Sloan, “The Daily Show”); Judy’s middle brother, HAM (Paul Rust, “Love”); and ten-year-old-going-on-fifty little brother, MOON (Aparna Nancherla, “A Simple Favor”). While the children’s mother is not in the picture, Judy seeks guidance from her new boss, ALYSON (Megan Mullally, “Will & Grace”), and her imaginary friend, ALANIS MORISSETTE (guest-voicing as herself), who appears to her in the Northern Lights.
The series, which already has been renewed for a second season, was created, written and executive-produced by “Bob’s Burgers” writers and executive producers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin, as well as writer Minty Lewis (“Regular Show”). The Molyneux sisters serve as showrunners. “Bob’s Burgers” creator Loren Bouchard is also an executive producer.
