Fox Comedy Premieres Feb. 14; HBO Max Renews Hit Comedic Kaley Cuoco Thriller for Season 2

The Great North

All-new animated comedy The Great North debuts Sunday, Feb. 14 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on Fox, as part of Sunday's Animation Domination lineup. The series, which already has been renewed for a second season, was created, written and executive-produced by Bob's Burgers writers and executive producers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin, as well as writer Minty Lewis. The comedy follows the Alaskan adventures of the Tobin family, as a single dad, BEEF (Nick Offerman), does his best to keep his weird bunch of kids close - especially his only daughter, JUDY (Jenny Slate), whose artistic dreams lead her away from the family fishing boat and into the glamorous world of the local mall. Rounding out the family are Judy's older brother, WOLF (Will Forte); his fiancé, HONEYBEE (Dulcé Sloan); her middle brother, HAM (Paul Rust); and ten-year-old-going-on-fifty little brother, MOON (Aparna Nancherla). While the children's mother is not in the picture, Judy seeks guidance from her new boss, ALYSON (Megan Mullally), and her imaginary friend, ALANIS MORISSETTE (guest-voicing as herself), who appears to her in the Northern Lights.

Animation Domination returns Sunday, Feb. 14 on Fox with all-new episodes of Bless the Harts (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT) at a new time, The Simpsons (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), The Great North (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), Bob's Burgers (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and Family Guy (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). The evening kicks off with the series premiere of all-new trivia game show Cherries Wild (7:00-7:30 PM ET/PT), hosted by Jason Biggs.


The Flight Attendant

HBO Max has renewed the hit comedic thriller The Flight Attendant starring Kaley Cuoco for a second season. The eight-episode first season premiered November 26 and had its finale on December 17. The entire first season is available to stream now on HBO Max. Season one was based on the novel of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Chris Bohjalian and told the story of how an entire life can change in one night. Flight attendant "Cassie Bowden" (Cuoco) woke up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man - and no idea what happened. The season also starred Michiel Huisman, Rosie Perez, Zosia Mamet, Michelle Gomez, T.R. Knight, Colin Woodell, Merle Dandridge, Griffin Matthews and Nolan Gerard Funk. Season two will feature Cassie in a new adventure. The first season saw week over week growth and ranked as HBO Max's #1 series overall during its run.
