Netflix Orders Circa-'70s Animated Series F is for Family From Bill Burr

Netflix is getting its groove on, placing a six-episode order for F Is For Family, a half-hour animated series set in the ’70s.

Created by comedian Bill Burr and Simpsons scribe Michael Price, the project follows the Murphy family in the 1970’s, a time when you could smack your kid, smoke inside and bring a gun to the airport.

Burr will voice the role of Frank Murphy, the family’s extreme patriarch; Laura Dern will voice Frank’s wife Sue; and Justin Long voices the family’s oldest son, Kevin.

Burr and Price serve as EPs alongside Vince Vaughn and Peter Billingsley.

F is for Family is the show I’ve always wanted to do,” said Burr. “It captures all the characters of my childhood the way I remember it to be. Fortunately Mike Price and everyone at Wild West seem to know the same people I knew growing up. It’s going to be a lot of fun to tell these stories.”

    I can’t wait to see when F is for Family animated series debut next year. It will be interested to see how much the series will capture the heart of the 70’s period.

    As a child of the 60’s and 70’s, I eagerly await this new show!

  3. Joey says:

    I hope this doesn’t dash my dreams of having Laura Dern cast on 2016’s Twin Peaks continuation. I feel like I need her to be Dale’s FBI contact, Diane.

    “A time when you could smack your kid, smoke inside and bring a gun to the airport.” Amazing description of the era!

    I love Phil Hendrie. He does such a great job Congrats

    Since this is TVLine, it must be noted that Haley Reinhart will voice a young boy named, “Bill.”
