FOX president Kevin Reilly confirmed to reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that its fall animated series “Allen Gregory,” about a precocious 7-year-old rich kid forced to assimilate with his peers in public school, is officially canceled.
“We will not be making any more ‘Allen Gregory,'” Reilly clarifies.
Although Reilly says the network still believes in its animated comedies — and Reilly says he’s very proud of “Bob’s Burgers” and the soon-to-debut “Napoleon Dynamite” — “Allen Gregory” has run its course.
Reilly adds that the network is still in business with Jonah Hill, who is currently developing a live-action comedy.
