Godfrey gets one-hour special on Comedy Central, developing half-hour animated series with FOX

GodfreyCongrats to stand-up comedian Godfrey, who not only is shooting his first one-hour stand-up special for Comedy Central in January, but also signed a deal with FOX to develop a half-hour animated series based on his routine and life.

Deadline reports that Bernie Cahill, Jordan Tilzer and Kenya Barris will executive produce the project, with Barris also writing with Godfrey, who would provide many of the voices. For anyone who has seen Godfrey perform live, picturing him voicing an animated series is not a stretch! Godfrey grew up in Chicago, the son of Nigerian immigrants.
