FOX Reveals Premiere Date for New Animated Comedy 'The Great North' Starring Nick Offerman and Jenny Slate

FOX has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original animated comedy series The Great North.

The first season will launch on Sunday, February 14 at 8:30/7:30c. The animated comedy has already been renewed for a second season.

The series follows the Alaskan adventures of the Tobin family, as a single dad, Beef (Nick Offerman), does his best to keep his weird bunch of kids close - especially his only daughter, Judy (Jenny Slate), whose artistic dreams lead her away from the family fishing boat and into the glamorous world of the local mall. Rounding out the family are Judy's older brother, Wolf (Will Forte); his fiancé, Honeybee (Dulcé Sloan); her middle brother, Ham (Paul Rust); and 10-year-old-going-on-50 little brother, Moon (Aparna Nancherla). While the children's mother is not in the picture, Judy seeks guidance from her new boss, Alyson (Megan Mullally), and her imaginary friend, Alanis Morissette (guest-voicing as herself), who appears to her in the Northern Lights.

Wendy Molyneux, Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin and Minty Lewis created the comedy. They executive produce with Loren Bouchard. 20th Television, Fox Entertainment and Bento Box Entertainment produce.
