As Mordecai and Rigby would say, “WOOOOOOOOOO!” Regular Show creator J.G. Quintel is starting a new animated series that will launch next year on the cable network TBS. It’s titled Close Enough, and early descriptions paint it as a domestic family comedy.
According to THR, “Close Enough is a surreal take on transitioning from 20-something to 30-something. The show centers on a married couple juggling such every day challenges as parenthood, friendship,Â ham theft,Â stripper clowns and choosing the right day care.” Given Quintel’s tendency to dip into the surreal, this list should surprise no one.
“We couldn’t be more excited to add one of animation’s most impressive and popular voices, J.G. Quintel,Â to our growing slate of animated series,” says Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. Both Cartoon Network and TBS fall under the Turner umbrella, and THR reports that Cartoon Network Studios will be handling some of the production.
Regular Show ended its run earlier this year when it aired its final episodes (IN SPAAACE). Based around two slacker animals working in a public park, it’s regarded as one of the best shows Cartoon Network has produced to date. 13 episodes of Close Enough have been ordered and TBS will begin airing them sometime in 2018.
