Digital titan Apple is getting all of its programming ducks in a row. Variety reported today that Bob’s Burger creator Loren Bouchard and 20th Century Fox are preparing new animated musical comedy series for Apple. The show, which is called Central Park, is written by Bouchard, Josh Gad and Nora Smith. It centers on a family of caretakers, who live and work in the New York park and end up saving the park— and the world.

The voice cast includes Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Titus Burgess, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Daveed Diggs, and Kathryn Hahn. Bouchard and Gad will executive produce and Smith serves as a consulting producer. Apple has ordered 26 episodes of Central Park, split into two 13-episode seasons.
