Titmouse to Produce ‘Fancy Bastards’ Pilot for MTV

Half-hour animated comedy to be executive produced by Jason Micallef, Kristen Schaal, Josh Turner McGuire and Trevor Engelson alongside series writers Price Peterson, Ryan Sandoval and Lily Sparks.

Santa Monica, CA -- MTV is back in the animation game. The network has ordered an animated pilot presentation with the working title Fancy Bastards from Executive Producers Jason Micallef and Kristen Schaal alongside Underground’s Josh Turner McGuire and Trevor Engelson. Price Peterson, Ryan Sandoval and Lily Sparks wrote the pilot and also serve as Executive Producers. Titmouse, Inc. is the studio.

In the half-hour animated comedy, a small town is shocked to learn its five most awkward outcasts all share the same father -- a notorious ginger cad who had an indiscretion filled night during a whirlwind visit to Vegas nine years ago… and just happens to be a prince. The misfits turn into royal rock stars overnight, but soon find that the “Fancy Bastard” life is no fairytale.

The voice cast includes Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect), Sharon Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne, Natasha Leggero (Neighbors), Nasim Pedrad (SNL), John Roberts (Bob’s Burgers), Jameeliah Garrett (Supanatural) and Jessica Lowe (Blended).
