Pair of toons unfold at Fox

Jonah Hill show to be produced by Chernin's shingle

Fox is expanding its animation development, picking up a presentation from thesp Jonah Hill to be produced by Peter Chernin’s shingle.

Net is also developing a script based on Peter Bagge’s graphic novel series “The Bradleys.”

Hill (“Superbad”) will provide voiceover services on his show, which he’ll write with scribes Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul (“Yes Man”).

Project centers on a 7-year-old socialite who acts and talks like an adult — and finds himself out of his element when forced to attend public school.

Hill, Mogel and Paul are set to exec produce the animated half-hour, along with Chernin and Katherine Pope. Chernin and Pope are set up at 20th Century Fox TV, which is the studio attached.

Also from 20th, Fox is developing the script behind “The Bradleys,” which will be written by Bagge and Matthew Lawton (“Crank Yankers”).

“The Bradleys,” which centers on a dysfunctional suburban family (through the eyes of teen Buddy Bradley), was first published in the early 1980s. It led to follow-ups “Neat Stuff” and “Hate.”

“I was obsessed with Peter Bagge’s comics when I was a teen,” Lawton said. “I ran away to Seattle at the age of 16, and was definitely this grumpy, disaffected punk kid.”

Lawton said he and Bagge will meet with 20th next week to hammer out the project’s storyline, and then begin the writing process.

Lawton and Bagge will exec produce along with Barry Katz, Brian Volk-Weiss and Michael Pelmont.
