CBS All Access has given a series order to animated comedy The Harper House from Brad Neely.
“Brad is an exceptional talent, who has translated his affection for his hometown into a rich, animated universe, with a family at the center that you instantly want to be a part of,” said Julie McNamara, EVP of Original Content for CBS All Access,. “We are thrilled to be bringing the Harpers to our subscribers as we continue to expand our animated original programming.”
Created by China, IL and Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio‘s Neely, The Harper House will follow an overconfident female head-of-a-household as she struggles to regain a higher status for herself, and for her family of oddballs, after losing her job and moving from the rich side to the poor side of an Arkansas small town. To save money, they’ve moved into their inherited Victorian fixer upper, the historic Harper House.
This marks the second animated series for CBS All Access following Star Trek: Lower Decks.
