Seth Rogen Lands 'Bigfoot' Pilot With FX

Date August 22, 2013

By Tim Kenneally

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Seth Rogen is getting animated for FX.

Rogen and his "Pineapple Express" cohort have landed a pilot for an animated project, "Bigfoot," which centers on "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," the network said Wednesday

The project is based on the Bigfoot graphic-novel "autobiographies" by writer and illustrator Graham Roumieu, who is also involved with the pilot.

Rogen and Goldberg are executive producing via their Point Grey Pictures. Roumieu is also executive producing, as are Matt McKenna ("American Dad"), who also wrote the pilot, Jimmy Miller and Sam Hansen of Mosaic, and Adam Reed and Matt Thompson of Floyd County Productions.

"We found Bigfoot!" Nick Grad, president of original programming, FX Networks and FX Productions, said of the project.

"This will be the greatest show about an animated Bigfoot ever made," Rogen added.

In all, FX currently has seven comedy pilots in production, including "The Comedians," which stars Billy Crystal and Josh Gad; and "Death Pact," starring Tracy Morgan.
