Billy Eichner To Provide A ‘Time Travelin’ Jerk’ To FX

Here’s what we know.

FX is developing a new animated series with Billy Eichner called Time Travelin’ Jerk according to a new report out of Deadline:

Created by Brady and written by Brady, Eichner, and Wenger based on a story by Brady, Time Travelin’ Jerk is described as Back to the Future meets Groundhog Day with a female lead. It tells the story of Ashley, a hilariously irreverent, whip-smart millennial girl, who gets stuck time traveling and absolutely hates it… but tries to make the most of it along the way.

Eichner will voice the main male character, Parker, an awkwardly sweet accountant who becomes Ashley’s time-traveling partner in crime.

Brady, Eichner and Wenger all executive produce. The three also served as executive producers on Billy on the Street.

Our Take

FX will probably premiere this series on the FXX network behind Archer should the series get picked up. This after the debacle that went down with the Deadpool animated series and the network’s continued quest to find a reliable animated series to groom for when Archer wraps after it’s 10th season in 2019. The aforementioned series finishes up it’s ninth season this month only on FXX.
