This February, a new show from the creators of Bob’s Burgers will premiere on FOX called The Great North. The series stars Nick Offerman, Jenny Slate, and Will Forte and looks to be a fun watch. If you’re wanting to get a taste for the show, a special preview of the show will air on January 3 at 8:30/7:30c. I’ve included a sneak peek down below and I’m definitely going to be giving The Great North a shot.
The new animated comedy follows the Alaskan adventures of the Tobin family, as a single dad, BEEF (Nick Offerman, “Parks and Recreation,” “Making It”), does his best to keep his bunch of kids close – especially his only daughter, JUDY (Jenny Slate, BOB’S BURGERS), 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, The Last Man on Earth”); his fiancé, HONEYBEE (Dulcé Sloan, “The Daily Show”); Judy’s middle brother, HAM (Paul Rust, “Love”); and ten-year-old-going-on-fifty little brother, MOON (Aparna Nancherla, “A Simple Favor”). While the children’s mother is not in the picture, Judy seeks guidance from her new boss, ALYSON (Megan Mullally, “Will & Grace”), and her imaginary friend, ALANIS MORISSETTE (guest-voicing as herself), who appears to her in the Northern Lights.
The Great North will premiere on February 14.
