Fox continues to build its TV animation pantheon by entering development on Demi-God, a new hybrid live-action/animation single-camera comedy from Bella and the Bulldogs writer Katie Greenway. The network has given Greenway — who will serve as writer and executive producer — a script commitment and is developing the series at Fox Entertainment.
Demi-God is centered on a powerless fast food employee who escapes her daily drudgery through the fantasy world she creates in her favorite video game. But her illusion of control slips away when a game upgrade grants sentience to the virtual townspeople.
The project joins a steady stream of recently announced new animated series in the works, including a collaboration with Superior Donuts star Jermaine Fowler, Daniel Cardenas Katz’s Ocean Village, The X-Files: Albuquerque from Paradise P.D. writers/producers Rocky Russo and Jeremy Sosenko and a new Dan Harmon series, as well as pre-pandemic pick-ups like Temporary Humans and Housebroken.
