Ozzy and Family Returning to TV in Animated Show ‘The F’n Osbournes’
The Osbourne clan put their unique stamp on reality television with the MTV series ‘The Osbournes’ in the mid-2000’s. Now Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly will return in animated form for the upcoming comedy ‘The F’n Osbournes.’
Ozzy Osbourne may be busy at work on the reunion album from Black Sabbath, but he will find time to voice an animated version of himself in the upcoming television show from the Toronto based animation company Cuppa Coffee Studios.
“Teaming up with Cuppa Coffee has spawned a great opportunity to produce a unique animated prime-time show. I’ve been excited about animating our often crazy lives for a while now,” says executive producer Sharon Osbourne, who shares production credits with Cuppa Coffee founder Adam Shaheen and son Jack, who describes the series as “a radical and humorous new spin on our family.”
The stop-motion animated show’s 20-episode run will feature each family member voicing themselves and — as the title may have revealed — is decidedly adult in nature. ” Although it is a cartoon, it’s certainly not one for little kids,” warns Shaheen. The show will seek financing at MipTV in April and is the Osbourne’s first TV collaboration since the short-lived 2009 Fox variety show ‘The Osbournes: Reloaded.’
