‘King of the Hill’ gets hourlong finale

Series to end 13-season run Sept. 13

King of the Hill” will get a proper sendoff with an hourlong series finale set to air Sept. 13.

Fox execs had indicated last week during the Television Critics Assn. press tour that the net would not air any more fresh segs of the animated series, which has been a mainstay of Fox’s lineup for 13 seasons. But insiders chalked that up to a slip of the tongue by Fox entertainment prexy Kevin Reilly.

The network had always planned to run the hourlong swan song for Hank Hill and his Texas clan, but the finale airdate wasn’t nailed down until Monday’s announcement.

“King of the Hill,” from 20th Century Fox TV, was created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels, who are exec producers along with John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, Jim Dauterive, Garland Testa, Howard Klein and Michael Rotenberg.
