You know I’m such a fool for you.
TruTV has officially put into production it’s first original animated series slated to premiere for the 2019/2020 season called This Functional Family. We first heard about this series a while ago and now it sounds like the network wants to join sister brands Adult Swim and TBS in hosting it’s own original animated series. Here’s a synopsis of the series:
truTV’s first-ever animated series, This Functional Family from comedian Jo Koy has been greenlit for a 10-episode first season slated to release next year. At the center of this multi-racial, multi-generational, multi-everything modern family is comedian Koy: a guy who just wants to be a good son, a better dad, a decent brother, and a solid ex-husband. Oh, and maybe get his career and dating life on track if his mother would just leave him the hell alone! Drawing upon real-life experiences and characters featured in Koy’s popular stand-up tour, this half-hour animated scripted series asks: what if the most real family on television was also a pretty weird cartoon? Created by Koy and Kirk Rudell, This Functional Family is produced by Stun with Koy, Rudell, Jeremy Colfer, Mark Feldstein, Brad Roth and Joe Meloche serving as executive producers. Rudell is the series’ showrunner.
Tia Carrere, Gillian Jacobs, Phil LaMarr, Josh Luis Keaton and Omid Abtahi are all part of the cast that will see Koy in the lead role. Kirk Rudell is running the show.
