FOX orders animated comedy series Bless the Harts

FOX has given a straight-to-series order to Bless the Harts, a half-hour animated comedy featuring the voices of Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, Saturday Night Live), Emmy Award and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Maya Rudolph (The Good Place, Bridesmaids), Emmy Award nominee Jillian Bell (Saturday Night Live, Eastbound & Down) and Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Blockers).

Created and executive-produced by Emmy Award winner Emily Spivey (The Last Man on Earth, Parks and Recreation, Saturday Night Live), 13 episodes of Bless the Harts have been ordered, which will air during the 2019-2020 season.

“Emily Spivey has the uncanny ability to observe the simplest qualities of everyday life, framing together bold characters and hilarious stories built around warmth and heart,” said Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “Having grown up in a close-knit southern family, she has a deep well of material that has inspired her to create this show, with a phenomenal cast, headlined by Kristen, Maya, Jillian, and Ike. As home to television’s most iconic animated families – the Simpsons, Griffins, and Belchers – we’re thrilled to welcome the Harts to FOX.”

Bless the Harts follows a group of Southerners who are always broke as a joke, and struggling for the American dream of status and wealth. What they don’t realize is that they’re already rich, in friends, family and laughter.

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Bless the Harts will be executive-produced by Emily Spivey, Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Phil Lord (The Last Man on Earth, The LEGO Movie), Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Christopher Miller (The Last Man on Earth, The LEGO Movie), Kristen Wiig and Seth Cohen (The Last Man on Earth, Drunk History).

Lord and Miller, who previously worked with Spivey on their series, The Last Man on Earth, will produce this project through their Lord Miller Productions banner, with the company’s Aubrey Lee overseeing the project. The celebrated multi-hyphenate duo continue to ramp up their slate in both television and film.

Up next for Lord and Miller on the film side will be the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which will hit theaters this December, and The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, slated for release in February 2019.
