MTV has ordered an animated pilot presentation for half-hour comedy Fancy Bastards (wt) with Brittany Snow, Sharon Osbourne and Kelly Osbourne among the cast. Jason Micallef and Kristen Schall are executive producing alongside Underground’s Josh Turner McGuire and Trevor Engelson. Price Peterson, Ryan Sandoval and Lily Sparks wrote the pilot and also serve as executive producers. Titmouse is the studio.
In Fancy Bastards, a small town is shocked to learn its five most awkward outcasts all share the same father – a notorious ginger cad who had an indiscretion-filled night during a whirlwind visit to Vegas nine years ago — and just happens to be a prince. The misfits turn into royal rock stars overnight but soon find that the “Fancy Bastard” life is no fairy tale. In addition to Snow and the Osbournes, the cast includes Natasha Leggero (Neighbors), Nasim Pedrad (SNL), John Roberts (Bob’s Burgers), Jameeliah Garrett (Supanatural) and Jessica Lowe (Blended).
