Zooey Deschanel is developing an animated fairy-tale comedy for Fox

Fox is developing a new fairy-tale series produced by living princess Zooey Deschanel. Queen Of Everything will be a half-hour animated comedy set in a workplace populated by fairy-tale characters, and centering on an evil queen who becomes the boss and realizes—not unlike Michael Scott, Selina Meyer, or David Brent—that being in charge isn’t easy when you’re universally disliked (or at least distrusted). With the help of her staff, the queen will attempt to turn things around in her kingdom/workplace, but some hazards will probably arise along the way, or else it wouldn’t be a TV show.

Deschanel and Hello Giggles pal Sophia Rossi are co-producing with Ali Waller (American Dad, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon), who also wrote the script.
