FOX's

As they make moves to eat away at the marketshare held by streaming giants like Netflix and Hulu, AppleTV announced today that they have picked up a new animated series from Bob's Burgers creator Loren Bouchard. CENTRAL PARK will be written by Bouchard, Broadway/TV favorite Josh Gad, and Nora Smith.

The 26-episode order (two 13-episode seasons) will focus on the story of a family of caretakers who live in Central Park.

Bouchard and Gad executive produce alongside Brillstein Entertainment Partners, with Smith serving as consulting producer. This series serves as the latest venture into the scripted show format for Apple. Gad will lend his voice to the series along with Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Daveed Diggs, and Kathryn Hahn. It was originally eyed for Fox, which has been looking up to ramp up its animated offerings, recently ordering Lil Kev animated pilot presentation based on the comedy of Kevin Hart.

According to a new report from Variety, Apple has landed a deal for its first animated TV series. The family ends up saving Central Park and the entire world.
