Simpsons executive producers
Bill Oakley and
Josh Weinstein are teaming up to take on the same roles on Fox's new animated comedy
Sit Down, Shut Up.
The series, yet to receive a firm placement on the Fox schedule, is based on a live-action Australian sitcom about staffers at a dysfunctional high school. The U.S. version of the comedy will take place in a northeastern fishing town.
Also part of the show's DNA is Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz, who wrote the show's first script. - J.R. Whalen
