The man, the myth, the legend— THE Dan Harmon is officially making another adult animated film at Fox Entertainment. That’s right, the co-creator of the hit series Rick and Morty is already developing his next show.
While the title of the series is currently under wraps, we do know the setting: Ancient Greece. The series will follow a very flawed family of humans, gods, and monsters as they attempt to govern ancient Greece, without killing each other in the process. Casting has already begun and Fox and Harmon are aiming to debut the series sometime in 2022.
President of entertainment for Fox Entertainment, Michael Thorn, said, “Leave it to Dan Harmon to turn the mythos of early Greek civilization into remarkably sharp commentary on today’s politics, celebrity and pop culture...This project is an incredibly irreverent family comedy as told by one of the town’s most inventive storytellers. We are proud to be partnered with Dan on this series, which strengthens our hold on the animation space and, as we continue to build Fox Entertainment, marks an important first step for us with our first fully-owned scripted property.”
