Fox has picked up a new animated series developed by Jonah Hill as the network continues to expand its “Animation Domination” line up.
Hill – who is perhaps best known for his roles in “Superbad” and “Knocked Up” – will be a featured voiceover actor on the show in addition to developing the script with writers Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul. Hill, Mogel and Paul will also be onboard as executive producers. The series revolves around a 7-year-old socialite who behaves like an adult but is forced to attend a public school, according to Variety.
This untitled project won’t be Hill’s first foray into animation. Earlier this summer it was announced that Hill had joined the cast of the upcoming Dreamworks animated film “Oobermind.” In the film, Hill will portray a new hero created by the super-villain Oobermind (Will Ferrell) who has become bored after defeating his previous arch-enemy, a superhero portrayed by Brad Pitt.
While Hill’s animated series on Fox is currently unscheduled, it may be paired with
“The Bradleys,” which is based on the cult comic book series “Hate” by Peter Bagge. As MTV News reported last week, “The Bradleys” will focus a teenager named Buddy Bradley and his dysfunctional family, who were first introduced in the early 1980s.
