Krapopolis will be the name of Dan Harmon’s next Fox animated comedy series, which is set in mythological ancient Greece, the network announced today at its upfront presentation. The show, which already made history as Fox Entertainment’s first entirely owned and financed scripted series, will foray farther into new waters for the network—and the television industry.
An imperfect family of humans, gods, and monsters attempt to manage one of Krapopolis, a comedy created and executive produced by Community and Rick and Morty co-creator and Emmy winner Dan Harmon.
Dan Harmon, the creator of the animated comedy KRAPOPOLIS, which takes place in mythological ancient Greece, won an Emmy (“Rick and Morty,” “Community”). focuses on a dysfunctional family of humans, gods, and monsters that attempt to rule one of the first cities on the planet without murdering one another.
“Krapopolis” made headlines for the first time in February when Fox declared that Harmon would be Harmon’s new show’s executive producer. Deadline claims that the show will debut sometime in 2022. But neither Fox, Harmon, nor the animation company Bento Box Entertainment, nor any of the show’s creators, have specified a precise premiere date for “Krapopolis.”
Fox said that “Krapopolis” would be “the first-ever animated series curated entirely on the Blockchain” shortly after the program’s first launch. In terms of promotion and merchandise for the show, “Krapopolis” represents Fox’s first excursion into the realm of cryptocurrencies and NFTs.
Regarding the special preview, the panel revealed that it will run on Fox on November 27 before the show’s anticipated 2023 debut.
Krapopolis is both the first animated series curated on the blockchain and the first written production that Fox Entertainment has fully controlled and funded. The business is developing a special marketplace for the program that will collect and distribute digital commodities, such as NFTs and tokens that provide fans with unique social experiences.
