    Netflix has greenlighted F Is For Family, a six-episode animated series based on the comedy of Bill Burr, which will be voiced by Burr, Laura Dern and Justin Long. The period family comedy, which will debut in 2015, is produced by Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Television and Gaumont International Television, the U.S.-based production arm of the French studio. This marks the first foray into animation for GIT, tapping the expertise of Gaumont Animation in France, and GIT’s third series on Netflix, joining dramas Hemlock Grove and the upcoming Narcos.

    Created by Burr and Emmy winner Michael Price (The Simpsons), who will serve as showrunner, F Is For Family follows the Murphy family in the 1970s — a time when you could smack your kid, smoke inside and bring a gun to the airport. Burr will voice Frank Murphy, the family’s extreme patriarch; Dern will voice Frank’s wife Sue; and Long voices the family’s oldest son, Kevin. “F Is For Family is the show I’ve always wanted to do,” Burr said. “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.”

    With all these outlets and example after example of people getting their projects out there - why does Stern have so much trouble getting his shit made?

    Oh - it's because it's horrendous and he's too cheap to pay anyone to produce it.

    Awwwww. Poor ole Phil Hendrie, he has been talking this up on his podcast for months now and no love for him in the article. But I am sure in his head he is convinced this will be the gig to catapolt him into tv once and for all! :giggle:
