Fox has ordered 13 episodes of animated family comedy “Duncanville” from Amy Poehler and married couple Mike and Julie Scully. The show is set to premiere during the 2019-20 TV season.

Poehler will voice two characters on the series, which also stars Rashida Jones and Wiz Khalifa.

The series centers on the life of Duncan, a spectacularly average 15-year-old boy, his family and friends, per Fox. Poehler will provide the voice of Duncan and his high-strung mom, Annie, who is constantly trying to prevent her son from ruining his life.

“‘Duncanville’ is one of the freshest animated concepts we’ve seen, and has an insane pedigree of comedic talent across the board,” said Michael Thorn, president of entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “We’ve enjoyed a long, incredible run with Mike and Julie, and everything Amy does is pure genius. Having the voice talents of Rashida and Wiz join her makes this show the complete package. I can’t wait to have them all together when we add ‘Duncanville’ to our growing animated slate.”

The Scullys are animated series veterans. They both wrote for “The Simpsons,” where he also served as executive producer and showrunner from 1997 to 2001.

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Universal Television, “Duncanville” was co-created by Mike and Julie Scully and Poehler, through her Paper Kite Productions, who executive-produce with Dave Becky of 3 Arts Entertainment.

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Mike Scully just announced he will be “dying on the Fox lot.” “The Simpsons” executive producer and former showrunner just signed a new multi-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television.

“We are happy to announce that we have signed the hilarious Mike Scully to a new overall deal,” the studio said in a statement Friday. “Mike is currently serving as showrunner of ‘Rel’ and is also developing an animated comedy series with Amy Poehler and his wife Julie Scully entitled ‘Duncanville’ for Fox.”

“I can’t think of a time in my tenure at this studio that we haven’t been in business with Mike Scully, and this deal is about making sure there never is one,” 20th Century Fox TV president of Creative Affairs Jonnie Davis said. “He’s such a talented comedy producer who can do just about anything, from live action to animation, single to multicam. He’s also about the nicest, most collaborative and creative guy you will ever have the pleasure to work with. We’re excited to have him leading ‘Rel’ for us this fall and the animated project he’s developing with Amy Poehler is really something special.”

“Thanks to [chairmen and CEOs] Dana [Walden], Gary [Newman], Jonnie and [president business operations] Howard [Kurtzman] and everyone at 20th for helping me realize my dream of dying on the Fox lot with my ashes to be scattered at Moe’s Cafe,” Scully said. “Seriously, I love working at 20th so much, I may push Disney and Comcast aside and put in my own hostile offer for the place.”

Here is the official logline for Scully’s upcoming comedy, “Rel,” which Fox ordered to series last month:

Lil Rel, a prideful, self-made success who lives by the code to “always believe in yourself and great things will come,” finds that attitude put to the test when he learns his wife is having an affair with his own barber. He tries to rebuild his life post-divorce as a long-distance single father on the South Side of Chicago who’s on a quest for love, respect and a new barber. Inspired by Lil Rel Howrey’s real life.
