It's going to be picked up!*
“Simpsons” writer-producers Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein have joined the staff of Mitch Hurwitz’ animated “Sit Down, Shut Up.” Because "Arrested Development" mastermind Hurwitz wrote the pilot, the move suggests the project will be announced as a series at Fox’s “upfront” in a little more than two weeks.
Variety’s story on the matter indicates that Oakley and Weinstein will serve as the series’ showrunners. Their other credits include “Mission Hill” and “The Mullets.”
*I can only assume this will delay the movie even further, if not kill it out right.
