Bret McKenzie seems to be keeping himself busy these days. In addition to working on the music for the upcoming sequel Muppets Most Wanted, the Academy Award-winner is writing a Labyrinth-esque musical comedy with James Bobin and has just announced that he has another project he’s working on: an animated series for Fox.
The A.V. Club is reporting that the Flight of the Conchords musician is working on a series about a group of N.A.S.A. employees who work in an “almost-obsolete” space center in Boulder, Colorado. Co-executive producers will be Tony Gama-Lobo and Rebecca May, who previously worked on King of the Hill.
While details are pretty sparse at the moment, this definitely sounds like it could be a fun idea. I trust in McKenzie, and I believe that he could produce another funny, witty show if given enough freedom and resources.
