Apple Lands First Animated Series, Central Park


The latest news proves that Apple is moving into the entertainment industry as they have ordered 26 episodes from the Bob's Burgers creator, Loren Bouchard. The animated comedy will have two 13-episode seasons. The series will be helmed in the same studio that works on The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad! and Bob's Burgers, and formerly produced Futurama and King of the Hill. So we don't really know what you'll have to do or pay to watch Central Park.

The tech company has given a two-season order for the show, which is named Central Park. Gad and Bouchard will write the script, as well as serving as executive producers.

Also joining the cast are Leslie Odom Jr, Tituss Burgess, Stanley Tucci, Daveed Diggs and Kathryn Hahn.

The series is being made by Twentieth Century Fox Television.

Other content Apple has been adding to its plans include Are You Sleeping?, a series starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, a futuristic drama called See from Steven Knight, and a remake of Spielberg's Amazing Stories.
