Jonah Hill has found a way to infiltrate every part of the entertainment industry. Not only is he an up and coming film actor-writer-comedian, now he’s about to get his own television show. According to Variety, the actor may be the next Seth McFarlane (Family Guy, American Day, The Cleveland Show) thanks to a presentation for a project entitled, The Bradleys.
The Bradleys centers on a 7-year-old socialite who acts and talks like an adult — and finds himself out of his element when forced to attend public school. Hill will provide the voice over narration for the series, as well as write alongside Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul. Twentieth Century Fox is developing a script for a half an hour series based on Peter Bagge’s graphic novel series The Bradleys, about a dysfunctional suburban family.
Why am I not surprised that Fox would stand behind this? They’ve always been innovative when it comes to adult themed comedies. I’m assuming Hill’s involvement will take the content of the show to a more adult level. I wonder where The Bradleys will fit in on the Fox roster. They already have The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Cleveland Show, and American Dad occupying their “Sunday Animation Domination” block. Will someone from that line up get canceled?
