The duo are among the voice cast attached to a new animated series titled “Little Demon” which has received a pilot order at FX, Variety has confirmed.
“Little Demon” hails from Plaza’s longtime collaborators Darcy Fowler, Seth Kirschner and Kieran Valla. It follows a reluctant mother (Plaza) who, 13 years after being impregnated by the Devil (DeVito), is attempting to live an ordinary life in Delaware with her daughter. However, she is constantly thwarted by monstrous forces, including Satan, who yearns for custody of his daughter’s soul.
Plaza’s Antichrist offspring will be voiced by DeVito’s daughter Lucy DeVito.
“Community” and “Rick and Morty” creator Dan Harmon is on board as an executive producer, alongside Fowler, Kirschner, Valla, and Plaza. Danny (who is of course one of the stars of FX’s historic comedy “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”), Lucy and Jake DeVito are all exec producing via their Jersey Films 2nd Avenue production banner.
The DeVitos and their shingle are currently under a first look development deal with FX, and have multiple other projects in development, per the network. Jersey Films 2nd Avenue is represented by CAA’s Barry Kotler and Fred Specktor, and Joel Behr of the law firm Behr, Abramson, Levy.
“Little Demon” marks the continuation of an extended creative relationship between Plaza and the trio of Fowler, Kirschner and Valla. Together, “The Terror Team,” as they reportedly insist on calling themselves, have delivered pilots and sketch comedy formats for various platforms.
The pilot is being produced by FX Productions, ShadowMachine and Steve Levy.
Deadline first reported the pilot order.
