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.”
