Get ready for the new daily show

Danny DeVito to play the devil in new animated series from Rick & Morty creator

Now, this could be a little something special.

FX is reportedly developing a new animated pilot from Rick and Morty creator Dan Harmon called Little Demon which will see Danny DeVito play the devil – we’ll let that sink in for a second – in a series which will co-star DeVito’s real-life daughter Lucy DeVito and Alita: Battle Angel star Aubrey Plaza.

The synopsis sounds wild:

13 years after being impregnated by the Devil (Danny DeVito), a reluctant mother (Plaza) and her Antichrist daughter (Lucy DeVito) attempt to live an ordinary life in Delaware, but are constantly thwarted by monstrous forces, including Satan, who yearns for custody of his daughter’s soul.

Given DeVito’s awesomeness and Plaza’s universal loveliness, mixed with Harmon’s track record with Rick & Morty, Community and more PLUS FX being the folks behind Archer, I’d say it’s a safe bet this show is going to have a bright, wicked future.

What say you all?

In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
