Fox Has Already Ordered More Scripts for New Animated Series NAPOLEON DYNAMITE and ALLEN GREGORY

     July 11, 2011


In what looks to be a good sign for the new animated series, Fox has apparently already ordered more scripts for both Napoleon Dynamite and Allen Gregory. While the adaptation of the quirky feature film of the same name received an order for seven more scripts, the Jonah Hil-produced series snagged an order for six more scripts. However, Vulture is careful to note that this is not the same as a full fledged order for more episodes. Likely Fox is still waiting on the ratings to turn up after the shows premiere in the fall before making that decision. However, with animated shows, since they take longer to produce, ordering the scripts in advance just makes sense.
