Can Bob’s Burgers Co-Creator’s Central Park Be A Spiritual Successor To Parks And Recreation? (Trailer)

Every five to ten years or so, we get another animated comedy series that has the potential to compete with The Simpsons. Over the years we’ve seen the likes of South Park and Family Guy take hold, but more recently it’s been Fox’s Bob’s Burgers. Between its quirky cast, family message, and hilarious jokes, it harkened back to some of those earlier Simpsons episodes. Now, co-creator Loren Bouchard is taking his talents to Apple TV+ with Central Park.

With his new series, we will be treated to quite the stacked voice cast. In the trailer alone, they boast Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Kathryn Hahn, Titus Burgess, Daveed Diggs, and Stanley Tucci. That’s a pretty solid voice cast, but I guess I would expect no less from an Apple TV+ series. Check out the trailer down below!

This one has me very interested. I really enjoy Bob’s Burgers, but what’s really missing from that show is a sort of overarching narrative. Okay, I say “missing” in the loosest sense. I don’t necessarily think that’d be the best way to go for Bob’s Burgers, but I do appreciate it when there are stakes that continue on from episode to episode. It allows it to never settle into a status quo and for characters to go through long-form arcs.

While there’s no telling whether or not this will truly be the case for Central Park, it does look to be the case. With the story revolving around Stanley Tucci’s character effectively looking to take over Central Park for her own nefarious purposes, I can see this being at least a season-long arc. All of a sudden, I’m reminded of Parks and Recreation. No, it’s not to do with the fact that they both have the word “park” in their title. That would be shallow. I’m reminded because Parks and Recreation was a show that followed a group of competent people against an incompetent world.

It’s a style that hasn’t really been replicated since, and I’d be interested to see if Central Park can take that mantle and translate it to an animated series. It’d certainly be unique, and given how hard-up Apple TV+ is for primo content, it’d be a great fit. What do you think of Central Park’s first trailer? Let us know your thoughts down below!
