Apple bought its first animated series with an order for two 13-episode seasons of "Central Park" from Loren Bouchard, creator of 'Bob's Burgers'. Central Park is labeled as a "new musical animated comedy" that follows a family of caretakers, who live in Central Park, who end up saving the park and the world.

The show will feature stars such as Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Josh Gad, and more while Bouchard and Gad will be the executive producers. Bouchard and Gad are executive producers; Smith will be a consulting producer.

This is indeed a rare sale of an animated comedy by the studio outside the larger Fox corporate family.


Central Park was developed at 20th TV - home of such animated series as The Simpsons, Family Guy, Bob Burgers, King of the Hill and American Dad - where Bouchard is based.

Further information, including a production and premiere timeline and platform for Apple's content, has yet to be announced. The show got a two-season, 26-episode order. Given that we're only just hearing about this now, it might take a while before Central Park is released.
