Apple has just picked up another relatively high-profile TV project for its streaming service, despite the fact—which we’ve pointed out multiple times—that it hasn’t really announced any concrete details about what this streaming service is. We don’t know when it will launch, we don’t know how much it will cost, and we don’t know if it’ll be a separate app, but we do know it’ll have (among other things) multiple shows from Reese Witherspoon, an anthology about immigrants from Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani, a mysterious drama from La La Land’s Damien Chazelle, and a reboot of Amazing Stories that won’t have Bryan Fuller.


Now we can throw Apple’s first animated series onto that pile, with Variety reporting that it has given a two-season order to a musical comedy called Central Park from Bob’s Burgers creator Loren Bouchard. The show will be produced by 20th Century Fox, and it will have a fairly star-studded cast that includes Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Titus Burgess, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Daveed Diggs, and Kathryn Hahn. Variety says it’s about a family that works in Central Park and somehow ends up “saving the park and basically the world.”

We don’t know when it will premiere or how you’ll be able to watch it, but maybe Apple will get around to talking about that stuff eventually.
