Based on the hit film Napoleon Dynamite tells the story of awkward teenager Napoleon. Convinced that he is destined for greatness and blessed with unlimited “sweet abilities”, he spends his days practicing ninja moves, soul dancing and bragging about a girlfriend no one has ever seen. Together with his best friend Pedro, brother Kip, and Uncle Rico, Napoleon struggles to navigate small-town life in rural Idaho. Jon Heder and the rest of the original cast will voice their characters in the series, which will include regular guest star voice appearances from well known celebrities. Premieres January 28, Saturday at 8:30PM.
Continuing to entertain fans with its outrageous humor, cutting-edge animation and epic episodes, Family Guy tells the story of the Griffin family. Ignorant dad Peter, stay at home mom Lois, socially awkward teenage daughter Meg, clueless son Chris, talking dog Brian and baby Stewie, an evil 1-year old who plans to take over the world. Together they spin a new hilarious twist on family life. In its 11th season watch as Peter befriends Ryan Reynolds (guest-voicing as himself), the Griffins struggle to stay grounded after winning the lottery and Stewie gets behind the wheel to take the family car for a spin. Premieres January 21, Saturday at 9PM.
Meet Allen Gregory (voiced by series creator Jonah Hill), one of the most pretentious 7-year-olds of our time. Having allegedly composed operas, written novels and dated a Hollywood actress—when he looks in the mirror he doesn’t see a kid but a young man of accomplishment. Raised by his dad Richard who he shares an extraordinary father–son bond with and his life partner Jeremy, Allen is about to embark on his greatest challenge yet: attending elementary school with children his own age. Allen Gregory premieres January 28, Saturday at 9:30PM.
