Fox Orders New Animated Comedy for 2024; Netflix Picks Up Reggaeton Comedy Neon

Fox Entertainment

Fox has formally ordered the all-new animated comedy Universal Basic Guys/The Hoagie Bros. (wt) from creators Adam and Craig Malamut (Sports Friends, Game of Zones, The Champions) for 2024. The series will be co-produced by FOX Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television, with FOX Entertainment's Emmy Award-winning Bento Box Entertainment serving as animation studio. In Universal Basic Guys/The Hoagie Bros., brothers Mark and Hank Hoagies suddenly find themselves with no jobs when the Glantontown Hot Dog factory switches over to automation. Lucky for them, the town started a radical Universal Basic Income pilot program, giving all residents of Glantontown $3,000 per month with no strings attached. Now, Mark, Hank and the rest of their local buddies are once again kids in the summertime, overflowing with the perilous combo of free time and stupid ideas. This is a show about men trying to find purpose in a world where they're no longer needed.


Neon

Netflix announced a series order for scripted comedy Neon, from creator Shea Serrano, with Max Searle serving as showrunner. Netflix ordered an eight episode season. Neon stars Tyler Dean Flores, Emma Ferreira, Jordan Mendoza and Courtney Taylor. Neon focuses on three friends who move from a small town in Florida to Miami with the hopes of making it big in the world of reggaeton. The show chronicles not only their larger than life dreams but the harsh comic realities of attempting to make it in the music industry.

In Neon, Tyler Dean Flores plays Santi, a budding reggaeton artist who, with the help of his friends, Ness (Emma Ferrerira) and Felix (Jordan Mendoza) and A&R rep, Mia (Courtney Taylor) hopes to become the biggest reggaeton star in the world. Or at least make rent.
