The creator of hit Disney TV animated series Gravity Falls Alex Hirsch has reportedly inked a deal with Fox and 20th Century Fox TV to produce an original script and pilot presentation for a new toon, according to Variety. The potential project remains utterly hush-hush.
“I’m cooking up some brand-new weirdness,” Hirsch told the trade paper.
Hirsch, a graduate of CalArts, has achieved pop culture cult status with quirky 2D mystery-comedy Gravity Falls, his first original series. The show is capping a 40-episode run with an hour long special event February 15 on Disney XD. The animator’s credits include Thurop Van Orman’s The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack for Cartoon Network and Noah Z. Jones’ Fish Hooks for Disney.
Gravity Falls airs weekdays at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Disney XD.
