The show is the second big announcement for the actress this week as Broad City, which was executive produced by Poehler, will end after its fifth and final season. The Saturday Night Live alum will lend her voice to the titular Duncan as well as his high strung mother, Annie. The series is written by Mike and Julie Scully of Simpsons fame. Fellow Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones and rapper Wiz Kalifa have also been cast for roles on the show.
Poehler will also serve as executive producer on the show with her company Paper Kite Productions along with the Scullys and Dave Becky of 3 Arts Entertainment.
President of Entertainment at Fox, Micheal Thorn, has called the show, “One of the freshest animated concepts we’ve seen, and has an insane pedigree of comedic talent across the board.” The show will join Fox’s growing roster of animated shows for adults which includes The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, and Bob’s Burgers.
The show is set to premiere during the 2019-2020 season but does not have a release date at this time.
