The cartoon was first announced in August 2022, and greenlit by MTV Entertainment Studios to run on Paramount+ and Comedy Central. Rock, as well as Sanjay Shah, Ali LeRoi, Michael Rotenberg, and Dave Becky, will executive produce the series, as he did with the original sitcom.

“A reimagining of this groundbreaking, critically acclaimed series has been a source of creative discussions at our studio for a long time,” detailed George Cheeks, president and CEO of CBS at the time.

“It’s exciting to join forces with 3 Arts and the comedic genius of Chris Rock as he expands on his vision of the original show in this innovative new format. This also marks another significant in-house collaboration for CBS with Chris McCarthy and our valued partners at MTV Entertainment Studios as we jointly support this marquee series for Paramount+ and Comedy Central.”
