Jordan Young has been named executive producer and showrunner on the Dan Harmon animated Fox comedy “Krapopolis.”
The show was ordered at Fox back in January and is slated to debut in 2022. Youthful will work under Harmon’s supervision in taking care of the everyday parts of the production.
Young began as an animator on “The Simpsons” prior to going on to co-develop the Comedy Central animated series “Drawn Together.” His different credits include “Son of Zorn,” “BoJack Horseman,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” “Life in Pieces,” and “Raising Hope.” He is repped by UTA and Lev Ginsburg.
Set in mythical ancient Greece, “Krapopolis” is centered on a flawed family of humans, divine beings and beasts that attempts to run one of the world’s first urban areas without killing one another.
The series falls under Harmon’s broadcast network-only exclusive direct animation deal with Fox Entertainment. Harmon made the series and fills in as executive producer close by Young.
As a feature of Harmon’s deal with Fox, Fox Entertainment will completely finance and entirely own the series, with Fox’s Bento Box Entertainment giving the animation. It is the first series to push ahead under Fox’s broadcast direct model.
Fox has made a significant drive into growing more animation of late, expanding on network cornerstones like “The Simpsons,” “Family Guy,” and “Bob’s Burgers.” Other Fox animated shows include “Duncanville,” and “The Great North.” Most as of late, the telecaster appeared the animated series “Housebroken,” which includes the voices of Lisa Kudrow, Clea DuVall, and Will Forte among others. The show debuted its first season on May 31.
