Fans of the Fox animated comedy ‘Bob's Burgers’ are in for a treat. The show’s creator Loren Bouchard is back with another project that is unbelievably similar in aesthetics and writing, though slightly disappointingly not about burgers. ‘Central Park’, that he’s executive producing along with Josh Gad and Nora Smith will tickle your funny bone as you wait for the Season 10 of ‘Bob’s Burgers’. 

Release Date

‘Central Park’ will premiere on Apple TV+ on May 29.


According to Apple TV+, ‘Central Park’ is an animated musical comedy about the Tillermans, a family that lives in Central Park. Owen, the park manager and Paige, his journalist wife, raise their kids Molly and Cole in the world’s most famous park while fending off hotel heiress Bitsy Brandenham and her long-suffering assistant Helen, who would love nothing more than to turn the park into condos.

The 39-year-old American actor barely needs an introduction. She’s the titular Sarah Marshall in ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ and she’s a feisty Eleanor Shellstrop on the acclaimed NBC comedy series ‘The Good Place’. The actor has multiple memorable and critically acclaimed roles in films like ‘Frozen’, ‘Fanboys’, ‘Zootopia’, ‘Veronica Mars’, and television shows like ‘Heroes’, and ‘Gossip Girl’.

The 41-year-old American actor and singer is perhaps best known for his role as Titus Andromedon on the Netflix comedy series ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’. He’s also appeared on shows like ‘30 Rock’ and films such as ‘The Angry Birds Movie’, ‘Smurfs: The Lost Village’, and ‘Dolemite Is My Name’.

The 59-year-old actor, writer, and filmmaker has enchanted audiences with his phenomenal acting in films and television for more than three decades. His acting range can be gauged from the variety of films he’s had critically acclaimed roles in, such as ‘Easy A’, ‘Spotlight’, ‘The Hunger Games’ series, ‘The Terminal’, ‘A Modern Affair’ and more.


The series voice cast also includes Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Kathryn Hahn, and Daveed Diggs.


The show's trailer that dropped on March 10 has an overwhelming 'Bob's Burgers' vibe. It begins in the eponymous Central Park in New York, where a man sings about it, while another urinates on a statue. Bouchard's signature wit and humor are visible in almost every frame, as the Tillerman family discusses the patriarch's favorite days on the Park's events calendar -- they are all extremely mundane (and borderline terrible-sounding).


Kristen Bell's Molly, in fact, almost feels like a little more grown-up Louise Belcher (Kristen Schaal) from 'Bob's Burgers', as she makes sly taunts at her brother. 

But the real treat comes in the form of Stanley Tucci’ Bitsy. She lives up to her name being the tiny, batty old lady she is. But underneath the really short frame is a character as evil as Mr. Burns from ‘The Simpsons’ and Mom from ‘Futurama’ and Cruella de Vil from ‘The Hundred and One Dalmatians’. Bitsy makes it clear from the get-go that she not only hates the Central Park her penthouse window overlooks, but she also wants to buy it and turn it into condos. 


All in all, the hilarious trailer only ensures that everyone curses about just how far May 29 is.




The series comes from the creator/executive producer of the animated comedy series 'Bob’s Burgers' Loren Bouchard, who co-wrote it with the Bob’s Burgers‘ executive producer Nora Smith and actor-writer Josh Gad (Frozen). Bouchard and Gad executive produce alongside Brillstein Entertainment Partners, with Smith serving as consulting producer. Kevin Larsen is also one of the producer.
