If someone was going to do an animated sitcom about NASCAR, it had to be Jeff Foxworthy, right? That’s what VARIETY is reporting might be on your TV screens soon, as Fox as given the greenlight to an animated pilot presentation from the inexplicably successful comedian about a NASCAR driver and his dysfunctional family.
So basically, it’s Talledega Nights, but replacing Will Ferrell for Jeff Foxworthy, and swapping all the funny jokes for terrible ones. When can I start setting my Tivo? I mean, it is animated, and cartoons make me laugh. (Oh, that Ziggy…) Plus, Fox is contractually obligated to pick up every animated series that ever comes out. I can only hope this is as successful as The PJs.
