Netflix Orders an Animated Series Created by and Starring Bill Burr

By

Not long after FX ordered a comedy pilot starring Bill Burr, the standup already has another series in the works over at Netflix. Deadline reports that the streaming network has greenlit a six-episode animated series created by Burr and Simpsons writer/producer Michael Price called F is for Family, which will center on “the Murphy family in the 1970’s, a time when you could smack your kid, smoke inside and bring a gun to the airport.” Burr will voice the father role of Frank Murphy with Laura Dern and Justin Long voicing his wife and son. Burr will also serve as an executive producer on the series alongside Vince Vaughn, whose production company Wild West Television is behind the show. “F is for Family is the show I’ve always wanted to do,” Burr said in a statement. “It captures all the characters of my childhood the way I remember it to be. Fortunately Mike Price and everyone at Wild West seem to know the same people I knew growing up. It’s going to be a lot of fun to tell these stories.”
