What a way to end the year!
Lisa Kudrow (Friends) is set to voice one of the lead characters in Lyle & Caroline, a a family show driven by the friendship of Lyle & Caroline – a surrogate grandparent/grandchild bond forms in an unexpected way. Kudrow will be voicing Caroline, the high school-aged grandchild and will also be a producer on the series that is being written/executive produced by Eric and Justin Stangel (Late Show with David Letterman).
FOX has ordered a pilot presentation from the Lionsgate/3 Arts joint.
This caps off a VERY busy year for FOX animation in which they’ve been ordered series and pilots left and right and have even helped sell a few series to streaming services. Lisa Kudrow’s best known voice performance is that of “Wanda” on BoJack Horseman of which she’s excellent and would make for a great lead for an adult animated series.
