Sick of watching the same Family Guy re-runs over and over? Me neither. But there is a promising new option under way for fans of animated hilarity. Fox is getting ready to air Bob’s Burgers, an animated comedy from Loren Bouchard and Jim Dauterive, the minds behind Dr. Katz and King of the Hill, respectively. What’s more, comedians Eugene Mirman, H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Kristen Schaal and Dan Mintz have all signed on to voice characters on the show.
“Bob’s Burgers came out of the fact that Fox’s animation brand centers mostly on family – but that he also wanted to dabble in workplace comedy” Brouchard told Variety. “Besides the focus on the family and its restaurant, Bob’s Burgers will also tell stories about the town that surrounds it. It’s a little more urban than other shows going on. Bob’s Burgers has an outer-borough, Jersey feel to it.”
The half hour comedy is set to air in early 2011.
