Siegfried and Roy's Troubled Toon

It all started with a visit to Siegfried and Roy's famed Vegas act. Two years, more than 200 animators and an estimated $13 million later, Dreamworks exec Jeffrey Katzenberg's brainchild, Father of the Pride, is finally hitting the air (Tuesday, 9 pm/ET).

It's a CGI-animated sitcom (debuting Aug. 31) about white lions (not tigers) who perform in Siegfried and Roy's Vegas act. Pride's many celeb voices include John Goodman, Curb Your Enthusiasm's Cheryl Hines and Orlando Jones, who explains here how he got involved in this unusual comic undertaking. TV Guide Online: How far along are you in the project?Orlando Jones: We recorded 13 [episodes]. TVGO: Which character are you?Jones: I play a gopher named Snack who is named that because his best friend is a lion. I think [the lions] like to remind him that, at any time, [he] could be luncread more
