Apple and Bob’s Burgers creator reveal trailer for new animated comedy, Central Park

Beware: the main song is an earworm

Matt Patches is an executive editor at Polygon. He has over 15 years of experience reporting on movies and TV, and reviewing pop culture.

Apple has low-key continued to add programming to its streaming service Apple TV Plus, but here’s one show that won’t go overlooked: Bob’s Burgers creator Loren Bouchard’s new series, Central Park, a series about a family of park caretakers who routinely end up saving the public grounds from (and sing along the way). Basically, Bob’s Burgers with fauna and flora instead of charbroiled beef.

The first trailer for the series, introduces us to the family, but also to the evil rich lady who wishes to purchase the entirety of Central Park because she just hates staring at it from her high rise penthouse. There’s also a really catchy song that will probably get stuck in your head on a loop.

“Where else can your son and daughter splash around in dirty hot dog water!” sings Josh Gad’s character.

The Central Park voice cast is stacked. Joining Josh Gad (Frozen; also one of the screenwriters) are Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton), Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Kristen Bell (The Good Place), Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games), Daveed Diggs (Hamilton), and Kathryn Hahn (Bad Moms) will star.

Central Park will premiere on Apple TV Plus on May 29.
