FX has greenlit a half-hour pilot episode for a new animated horror-comedy series starring Danny DeVito (Batman Returns) and Aubrey Plaza (Child’s Play).
Called Little Demon, the series is created by Darcy Fowler, Seth Kirschner, and Kieran Valla and follows a reluctant mother (Plaza) who was impregnated by the Devil (DeVito). As she attempts to live an ordinary life in Delaware with her Antichrist daughter (Lucy DeVito), she is constantly thwarted by monstrous forces—not least the Devil, who yearns for custody of his daughter’s soul.
Little Demon comes to us from Jersey Films 2nd Avenue, ShadowMachine, and FX Productions. Dan Harmon, co-creator of Rick and Morty, will executive produce.
