Hank Azaria to Lead Cast of Comedy from ‘Family Guy’ Producers

“The Simpsons” vet Hank Azaria is heading across the border and will be the lead voice role in “Bordertown,” Fox’s new animated series created and written by “Family Guy’s” Mark Hentemann.

Azaria will play Bud Buckwald, a married father of three and a politically out-of-touch Border Patrol agent in the comedy that aims to take a satirical look at at the cultural shifts occurring in America. He joins a previously announced cast that includes “Family Guy” alum Alex Borstein, who voices both his wise-yet-oblivious wife and his socially awkward daughter Becky, Missi Pyle, who voices his beauty-pageant obsessed daughter Gert, and Judah Friedlander, who voices his delusional son Sanford. “Sleepy Hollow’s” Nicholas Gonzalez lends his voice to Bud’s overachieving immigrant neighbor Ernesto Gonzalez, while “Napoleon Dynamite’s” Efren Ramirez guest stars as Ernesto’s son Ruiz.

Bordertown” is produced by 20th Century Fox TV. Hentemann is exec producing with Seth MacFarlane. Alex Carter and Dan Vebber are co-exec producing. Lalo Alcaraz and Gustavo Arellano are consulting producers and Valentina L. Garza is a supervising producer.
