Azaria lends voice to ‘Stressed Eric’

NBC will carry animated sitcom

Hank Azaria has signed on to voice the title character of the BBC/Klasky-Csupo/Absolutely Prods.’ animated sitcom “Stressed Eric,” which premieres on NBC Aug. 12 at 9:30 p.m.

The series, which focuses on the adventures of a middle-aged divorced father of two, originally aired in the U.K. with an all-British cast. In the domestic version, the lead character will be portrayed as an American abroad in London.

Primetime voiceover work is nothing new to Azaria, who gives life to such characters as Moe, Apu, Chief Wiggum and Dr. Nick Riviera on Fox’s “The Simpsons.” That show, too, was originally animated by Klasky-Csupo.

Azaria’s rep at Endeavor could not be reached for comment.
