Fox launches a new animated series, giving a 13-episode straight-to-series pickup order to Bless the Harts. 

The new animated series will star Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph, which means an extra hilarious reunion.

The two leading ladies will lend their voices to the half-hour comedy series that follows a group of Southerners who are always broke as a joke and struggling for the American dream of status and wealth. What they don’t realize is that they’re already rich, in friends, family, and laughter.

“Emily Spivey has the uncanny ability to observe the simplest qualities of everyday life, framing together bold characters and hilarious stories built around warmth and heart,” said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment at Fox Broadcasting Company. “Having grown up in a close-knit southern family, she has a deep well of material that has inspired her to create this show, with a phenomenal cast, headlined by Kristen, Maya, Jillian and Ike. As home to television’s most iconic animated families – the Simpsons, Griffins and Belchers – we’re thrilled to welcome the Harts to Fox.”

Bless the Harts is created and executive produced by Emily Spivey.
