Apple has given a straight-to-series, two-season order to the original animated comedy Central Park from Bob's Burgers creator Loren Bouchard and Tony nominee Josh Gad (The Book of Mormon, Frozen).

Central Park tells the story of how a family of caretakers, who live and work in Central Park, end up saving the park - and basically the world.

The voice cast includes Gad, Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton), Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Kristen Bell (The Good Place), Stanley Tucci (Feud), Daveed Diggs (Hamilton) and Kathryn Hahn (Transparent).

Bouchard and Gad wrote the premiere and will executive produce. Nora Smith will serve as a consulting producer while Kevin Larsen is a producer. 20th Century Fox Television and Brillstein Entertainment Partners will produce.

The order is for 26 episodes split across two seasons.
