Back in May, we were excited to hear that the FX Network was in development on an animated series featuring Bigfoot. We’ve just heard some more good news ...

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has placed a pilot order for an animated comedy based on the “autobiographical” books Bigfoot, by Graham Roumieu.

According to the report and FX Productions, “Bigfoot is an adaption of Roumieu's comedic works In Me Own Words, Me Write Book and I Not Dead. The series follows Bigfoot, everyone's favorite crypto-zoological hominid as a modern-day everyman who struggles with life's philosophical quandaries as well as his own animalistic tendencies.”

Comedic actor, Seth Rogen (This is the End) and writer, Evan Goldberg (The Watch, Superbad) will serve as executive producers along Archer creator Adam Reed and Graham Roumieu, Jimmy Miller, Matt Thompson and Sam Hansen. Matt McKenna (American Dad) will write and act as supervising producer.

Rogen promises that “This will be the greatest show about an animated Bigfoot ever made.” We sure hope so, Seth!

We’ll keep you posted on when the pilot will air.
