Fox is developing an animated comedy series from Amy Poehler, TheWrap has learned.
The potential series, which has received a script and pilot presentation order from the network, centers on the family and friends of 15-year-old Duncan Harris, an average kid with dreams of being a UFC fighter, tech billionaire, video game champ, or any job where you make a ton of money and don’t have to wear a tie.
“Simpsons” duo Mike Scully and Julie Scully will write. Poehler is attached to voice multiple characters.
The untitled comedy is executive produced by Poehler, Mike Scully and his wife and producing partner Julie Scully, along with Dave Becky of 3 Arts. The project is a co-production from Universal Television and 20th Century TV.
In addition to this project, Poehler’s Paper Kite production banner has a number of projects in development, including the dark musical comedy series “Edison” at HBO. The company also produces Hulu’s “Difficult People” and Comedy Central’s “Broad City.”
