Fox will debut a new half-hour animated series, Golan the Insatiable, on Sunday, May 31st. Here’s a preview:

The series, created by Josh Miller and developed by Dave Jeser and Matt Silverstein (co-creators of Drawn Together), initially aired as a series of 11-minute installments on Fox’s late-night Saturday program Animation Domination High-Def (ADHD), before the block was cancelled last summer.

ADHD, concocted by former Adult Swim exec Nick Weidenfeld, was intended to partly be an incubator for Fox’s primetime programming. The new Golan series, which is the first primetime order derived from the ADHD block, will consist of six episodes in its first season.

The show is produced by Friends Night, in association with Double Hemm. Brooklyn-based Augenblick Studios, known for its work on the Comedy Central series Ugly Americans and the first season of Superjail!, animated multiple episodes of the series. The main characters—Golan, a “godlord” from another dimension, and Dylan, a nine-year-old girl from Minnesota—are voiced by Rob Riggle and Aubrey Plaza respectively. Other voices include Ken Marino, John DiMaggio, Maria Bamford, Rachel Butera, and Nick Rutherford.

Weidenfeld exec-produced the series with Hend Baghdady, Silverstein, and Jeser, along with Josh Miller as co-executive producer.

An earlier version of this article incorrectly named Augenblick Studios as the producer of the show. Friends Night and Double Hemm produced the series; Augenblick Studios animated some of the episodes and is officially credited with “additional animation.”
