Dan Harmon is getting animated at Fox: The Community and Rick and Morty creator will develop a comedy series for spring 2022 as part of his new broadcast network-only exclusive direct animation deal with Fox Entertainment.
“Before joining the network ranks, I was an independent producer who had the opportunity to work with Dan on one of my very first projects,” Fox entertainment president Michael Thorn said in a statement. “His singular voice, tenor and conviction to always deliver the unexpected in the stories he tells let me know right away that he was a special talent. As one of the most prolific creators working in the business today — and as Fox’s animation brand continues to grow and evolve, with the support and guidance of Charlie Collier — there’s no better creative partner to have than Dan Harmon.”
Harmon’s animated cult fave Rick and Morty wrapped its fourth season on Adult Swim last month.
