The tech giant's first animated series received an order for two 13-episode seasons of the show. The new series is a musical comedy that tells a story of how about a family of caretakers that lives in Central Park in New York City. So we don't really know what you'll have to do or pay to watch Central Park.

The series has an all-star cast including Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Titus Burgess, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Daveed Diggs, and Kathryn Hahn. Bouchard and Gad are executive producers; Smith will be a consulting producer.

Central Park is the 14 show to be commissioned by Apple in the space of a year, as it picks up the projects in its bid to build a successful TV business.

Variety notes that this is a unique move for 20th Century Fox to sell one of its animated series as it has held on to most of its popular content like The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad! But we do know that Apple also gave a two season order to Untitled Morning Show starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.
