The Simpsons creator Matt Groening set to team up with Netflix for new animated comedy series

Groening is reportedly in talks to create an original show for the on-demand service


Matt Groening, the man behind the biggest animated comedy series in the world, could be about to embark on a similar project for Netflix.


The Simpsons and Futurama creator is in talks with the on-demand giant to create a new show – also animated, also comedy – according to Hollywood insiders Deadline.


No further details as yet, but it’s definitely an exciting potential collaboration given Groening’s pedigree and Netflix’s previous investment in the similarly irreverent animation BoJack Horseman.
