MTV today announced it has ordered an animated pilot presentation with the working title “Fancy Bastards” from Executive Producers Jason Micallef and Kristen Schaal alongside Underground’s Josh Turner McGuire and Trevor Engelson. Price Peterson, Ryan Sandoval and Lily Price wrote the pilot and also serve as Executive Producers. Titmouse, Inc. is the studio.
In the half-hour animated comedy, a small town is shocked to learn its five most awkward outcasts all share the same father – a notorious ginger cad who had an indiscretion filled night during a whirlwind visit to Vegas nine years ago… and just happens to be a prince. The misfits turn into royal rockstars overnight, but soon find that the “Fancy Bastard” life is no fairytale.
The stellar cast includes Brittany Snow (“Pitch Perfect”), Sharon Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne, Natasha Leggero (“Neighbors”), Nasim Pedrad (“SNL”), John Roberts (“Bob’s Burgers”), Jameeliah Garrett (“Supanatural”) and Jessica Lowe (“Blended”).

I’m the proudest fan girl ever right now! I hope everyone had a chance to watch “Pitch Perfect 2” this weekend! I watched it Saturday afternoon and theater was PACKED!! Brittany was fantastic (as per usual) and being a fan of hers for nearly 13 years I couldn’t help but feel so proud of our girl!! PP2 is breaking records!!:
The final tally is in, and Pitch Perfect 2 may end the weekend between $68.9M to $70.3M after a stunning Saturday night of $24.6M. Universal is going the high end on this, but everyone else in town (and we) are sticking to the lower estimate. We’ll see if the studio over-anticipated to get the $70M headline across the country (they’ve done so before). Still, the Universal film from first-time feature director Elizabeth Banks is the highest-opening musical ever (see chart below) and, as we previously reported, out-performed the $65M lifetime domestic gross of the first film.
Rentrak just noted the rarity of that, but said it’s a similar scenario to the performance of the second Austin Powers‘ film, The Spy Who Shagged Me which opened to $54.9M vs. the $53.8M that the original film earned in its domestic run. Universal is also boasting (as well it should) that PP2 is the second-highest PG-13 comedy opening ever (only behind Austin Powers Goldmember which opened to $73M in the summer of 2002). They also note that PP2 is the fifth-highest opening of the year to date and also marks the seventh time this year that a Universal film has held the No. 1 position (more than any other studio).
