Fox Puts New Toon on Order

In a bid to expand its roster of primetime animated series, Fox has ordered a pilot for a new show from Emmy-winning Rugrats producer/animator Chuck Swenson and writer Brian Lynch, according to Daily Variety. The yet untitled family comedy will be set in a desert community on the outskirts of Los Angeles as a 31-year-old divorcee moves back into his parent’s home with his three children.

“It’s a weird juxtaposition of generations and climate that plays into this idea of trying to go back home and pick up the pieces,” Swenson tells the trade. The former Klasky Csupo VP is developing storylines with Lynch, who has sold projects to Warner Bros., Fox and Artisan.
