Apple has beat out several others to acquire the animated musical comedy series “Central Park” from 20th Century Fox TV and given the project a two-season, 26-episode straight-to-series order.
“Bob’s Burgers” creator Loren Bouchard created and co-writes the series with Nora Smith and actor-writer Josh Gad. Gad also lends his voice to the series along with Leslie Odom Jr., Titus Burgess, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Daveed Diggs and Kathryn Hahn.
The story follows a family of caretakers who live and work in Central Park and end up saving the park and basically the world in the process. Bouchard and Gad executive produce and Kevin Larsen will produce.
