This is wild.
FOX is teaming up with Hugh Davidson, Rachel Ramras and Larry Dorf (aka the producers of Mike Tyson Mysteries which will be streaming episodes on VRV this Winter) for development of a new animated series called Buffalo Wings.
Written by Davidson, Ramras and Dorf, Buffalo Wings is about two Canadian brothers who do not follow the rest of their flock when they fly south. When their hypothesis is wrong and they almost freeze to death, they must take refuge in Buffalo, NY, where they begin to live life as immigrant refugees. This series explores what it is to be a refugee and to fall in love with this country while pursuing the “American Dream” from every possible angle.
This pitch sounds like a reverse Fugget About It which was a show about New Yorkers flocking to Canada to escape a hit from the mob and mixed with HBO’s Animals, but given that this one is coming from the same guys that turned Mike Tyson into an animated star, I’m on board. Here’s hoping Norm MacDonald is in the pilot presentation. This could be something that the former producers of the aforementioned HBO show could lend help on.
