Netflix Orders Bill Burr Animated Comedy Series 'F Is For Family' by Bree Brouwer of Tubefilter

Wall Street’s lackluster response to Netflix‘s Q3 2014 earnings isn’t hurting the online premium subscription video on-demand service’s originals game. The company just announced a deal for the all-new animated series F Is For Family, based on the comedy of Bill Burr.

Created by Burr and Emmy-winner Michael Price (The Simpsons), F Is For Family will follow the story of the Murphy family in the changing era of the 1970s. Burr will voice Frank Murphy, Laura Dern will play his wife Sue, and Justin Long will take on the role of their oldest son, Kevin. The six-part series will be produced by Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Television and Gaumont International Television, the latter of which has already seen two of its other series developed for Netflix: the horror-based Hemlock Grove and the upcoming drama Narcos (starring one Oberyn Martell).

“[F Is For Family is] the show I’ve always wanted to do,” said Burr to The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”

F Is For Family will debut in all Netflix territories in 2015. In the meantime, you can see if BoJack Horseman, the first original animated comedy from the SVOD company (and recently renewed for a second season), tickles your funny bone.
