Animated Comedy 'Everybody Still Hates Chris' Lands Series Order at Paramount+

Paramount+ has today given a series order to the original animated comedy series Everybody Still Hates Chris - an animated reimagining of the UPN comedy Everybody Hates Chris. Chris Rock will return as the narrator, with no other casting being announced today.

The series is inspired by Chris Rock's experiences growing up as a skinny nerd in a large working-class family in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn during the late 1980s.

Sanjay Shah developed the series. He will executive produce with Rock, Ali LeRoi, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky and Grant Gish. CBS Studios, MTV Entertainment Studios and 3 Arts Entertainment will produce.

"Chris Rock is one of the most gifted comedians of all time and we're excited to partner with him, 3 Arts and CBS Studios to bring this to life and welcome it as the next big hit in our expanding arsenal of iconic adult animation that includes smash series such as South Park and the new Beavis and Butt-Head," said Chris McCarthy, President and CEO, Paramount Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios."
