"Krapopolis" on Fox

"Krapopolis", the new animated TV series from Emmy Award-winner Dan Harmon ("Rick and Morty") is set in mythical Ancient Greece, following a flawed family of humans, gods and monsters, who try to run one of the world's first cities without killing each other, airing a sneak peek episode November 27, 2022, before the series premiere in 2023 on Fox:

Voice cast includes Emmy Award winner Hannah Waddingham ("Ted Lasso"), Richard Ayoade ("The IT Crowd"), Matt Berry ("What We Do in The Shadows"), Pam Murphy ("Mapleworth Murders") and Duncan Trussell ("The Midnight Gospel"). 

Ayoade voices "Tyrannis", the mortal son of a goddess. He's the benevolent 'King of Krapopolis' trying to make do in a city that lives up to its name. Waddingham plays "Deliria," Tyrannis' mother, goddess of self-destruction and questionable choices. Within her extended 'Olympian' family - forged in patricide and infidelity - she's known as the trashy one. 

Berry is "Shlub," Tyrannis' father, a 'mantitaur' (half centaur, half manticore). He is oversexed and underemployed, claims to be an artist and has literally never paid for anything, in any sense of that word, for his entire life. Murphy voices "Stupendous," Tyrannis' half-sister, daughter of Deliria and a 'cyclops'. Trussell plays "Hippocampus," Tyrannis' half-brother, offspring of Shlub and a mermaid.
