FXX Orders New Animated Series Little Demon, Starring Aubrey Plaza And Danny DeVito
The upcoming show features Plaza as the mother of the Antichrist and DeVito as Satan.
FXX has picked up the new series Little Demon, a half-hour animated comedy starring Danny DeVito, his daughter Lucy DeVito, and Aubrey Plaza. The show comes from Danny DeVito's Jersey Films 2nd Avenue, ShadowMachine, and FX Productions, with Rick & Morty co-creator Dan Harmon executive producing. The series joins a growing animated comedy series lineup on FXX, which also includes Archer and Cake.
The official synopsis reads: "Thirteen years after being impregnated by the Devil (Danny DeVito), a reluctant mother (Aubrey Plaza) and her Antichrist daughter (Lucy DeVito) attempt to live an ordinary life in Delaware, but are constantly thwarted by monstrous forces, including Satan, who yearns for custody of his daughter's soul." The series will first broadcast episodes on FXX, which will subsequently be available to stream the following day on FX on Hulu--which is also the streaming service that the somewhat similar Marvel's MODOK calls home.
"Little Demon is a hilarious new animated horror comedy," said Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Entertainment. In addition to Plaza, Danny and Lucy DeVito, Grad said the show will feature "a host of other great talent."
The half-hour series is created and written by Darcy Fowler (Louie), Seth Kirschner (30 Rock), and Kieran Valla (Disturbia). No premiere date for the new series has yet been announced.
