'Superbad' star brings animated comedy to FOX
Jonah Hill will co-write, executive produce and lend his voice to an animated pilot
FOX has picked up a presentation for an animated pilot from Jonah Hill.
According to Variety, Hill is co-writing the untitled pilot with Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul ("Yes Man"). He'll also voice the main character, described as an uber-mature seven-year-old socialite forced to attend a public schedule.
Mogel, Paul and Hill will all executive produce along with Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope through Chernin's new 20th Century Fox TV-based shingle.
Hill was most recently seen in "Funny People." He's no stranger to animation voice-over work, with credits including "Horton Hears a Who!" and the upcoming "How to Train Your Dragon."
The network and the studio are also developing "The Bradleys," based on Peter Bagge's graphic novel series about a dysfunctional family. Bagge and Matthew Lawton ("Crank Yankers") are adapting the project.
