Network orders a presentation by the ‘Reno 911’ star for his workplace adventure comedy set at a secretive mashup of the Coast Guard and Post Office.
Reno 911! star Thomas Lennon has begun development of The Post Guard, an animated workplace comedy adventure series for Fox.
According to the network, Fox has ordered a presentation of the project. Lennon will write and executive produce, with Peter Principato also executive producing. Fox Entertainment and Bento Box Entertainment are producing.
The Post Guard follows the rag tag crew of humans, turtles, seals, and mermaids at the secretive, and often overlooked mashup of the Coast Guard and Post Office, as they scour the high seas to find and deliver messages in bottles, while settling who among them is in charge of the ship’s menial tasks, like resetting the WiFi.
A versatile actor, voice actor and comedian, Lennon is most well-known for co-creating the hit Comedy Central mockumentary series, Reno 911! back in 2003, which briefly found new life last year through resurrection on Quibi before the highly touted mobile content platform shut its doors in December.
Thomas is repped by Artists First, UTA and Jackoway Austen Tyerman Wertheimer Mandelbaum Morris Bernstein Trattner & Klein.
Dan Sarto is Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Animation World Network.
