The show is the first animated series for Apple.

Central Park was developed at 20th TV - home of such animated series as The Simpsons, Family Guy, Bob Burgers, King of the Hill and American Dad - where Bouchard is based.

The series is called Central Park, and is co-written by Josh Gad and Nora Smith in addition to Bouchard, and it follows a group of caretakers who live and work in the titular location in NY.

Written by Bouchard with Josh Gad and Nora Smith, the show is about a family of caretakers who save the famous park as well as the world. Bouchard and Gad are executive producers; Smith will be a consulting producer.

Central Park has received an order for two 13-episode seasons, according to Variety, and will also feature Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, and Kathryn Hahn. Central Park is a key sale for 20th Century Fox Television, which is on the verge of being sold to Disney as part of 21st Century Fox's larger $52 billion deal. The company has given out several straight-to-series orders, including a morning-show drama from Jennifer Anniston and Reese Witherspoon, a drama from Oscar victor Damian Chazelle, and a drama based on the early life and career of Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant.
