Like Josh Gad did recently for Central Park, another producer has leaked an image to an upcoming adult animated series, this time it’s Duncanville. Show director Anne Walker Farrell (Final Space) recently ‘grammed a screen of what looks to be the Duncanville key art and logo thereby giving us our very first look at the series’ main character, “Duncan” slated to be voiced by show producer Amy Poehler.
Written by Mike and Julie Scully, DUNCANVILLE will feature the voices of Poehler, who will star as two characters, Emmy Award nominee Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation,” “Angie Tribeca”) and Golden Globe nominee Wiz Khalifa (“American Dad!,” “BoJack Horseman”). Thirteen episodes have been ordered, and the series is set to premiere during the 2019-2020 season.
The series centers on the life of Duncan, a spectacularly average 15-year-old boy, his family and friends. Poehler will provide the voice of Duncan and his high-strung mom, Annie, who is constantly trying to prevent her son from ruining his life.
Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Universal Television, DUNCANVILLE was co-created by Mike and Julie Scully and Amy Poehler, through her Paper Kite Productions, who executive-produce with Dave Becky of 3 Arts Entertainment.
Note the shaggy-headed mop top of the show’s star “Duncan”. Initial impressions have me very excited to see this character in action. It’s about time more gingers like us get screen time, and Duncanville will hopefully give us a better rep than South Park does.
