Amy Poehler may be headed back into TV comedy — or at least her voice is.

The Parks and Recreation alum will voice multiple characters in a prospective animated series for Fox, EW has confirmed. The show revolves around the family and friends of a 15-year-old named Duncan Harris, “an average kid with dreams of being a UFC fighter, tech billionaire, video game champ, or any job where you make a ton of money and don’t have to wear a tie.”

The untitled project reunites her with Parks and Rec producer Mike Scully, who’s also a longtime producer on The Simpsons. Scully will write the script with his wife, Julie Scully (also of The Simpsons), and Fox has ordered a pilot presentation. Poehler will serve as an executive producer alongside the two Scullys.

Poehler — who starred this summer on the big screen in The House, and in Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later — continues to expand her TV reach. She is an executive producer of Comedy Central’s Broad City and Hulu’s Difficult People, as well as The Handmade Project, a yet-to-be-scheduled NBC crafts competition series that she also will host with Parks castmate Nick Offerman, and the in-development HBO musical comedy Edison.
