Disney has established a new animation studio called 20th Television Animation that’s focused on maintaining current and developing new adult animation shows.
The studio, a rebranding of the Fox Television Animation unit which was consolidated when Disney and Fox merged in 2019, will be led by veteran Fox employee Marci Proietto. 20th Television Animation will be responsible for currently airing shows like Family Guy and The Simpsons, according to Deadline.
This also means that shows produced by 20th Television, including American Dad and Bob’s Burgers, will now come out of the 20th Television Animation unit.
The team has 11 series in production right now. Alongside Hulu’s Koala Man, Solar Opposites, and the aforementioned shows, the unit is in charge of Bless The Harts, Central Park, Duncanville, The Great North, and The Prince.
Disney said 20th Television Animation also has “dozens” of additional adult animation projects in development for a range of platforms. What shows these are and where they will land has yet to be clarified.
In other Disney news, the company recently raised the prices of the Disney+ streaming service. It will now cost $8 per month to subscribe.
