Riki Lindhome (Another Period) is set as a series regular opposite Amy Poehler in Fox’s animated family comedy Duncanville, from Poehler and her Paper Kite Productions, The Simpsons veteran Mike Scully and his wife, former Simpsons writer-producer Julie Scully, 20th Century Fox TV and Universal TV. It’s slated to premiere during the 2019-20 season.
Written by Mike and Julie Scully, Duncanville centers on Duncan (voiced by Poehler), a spectacularly average 15-year-old boy with a rich fantasy life and the people in his world.
Lindhome will play Kimberly, Duncan’s ]awkward, emotional, 12-year-old sister. She can hold grudges forever while waiting patiently for revenge. She sometimes says hurtful things but doesn’t get why people are upset because, “What? I’m just being honest.” All emotions all the time, nobody’s problems are bigger than hers. Kimberly fears that she is the forgotten middle child, and she’s not wrong. Loves to torment Duncan but occasionally takes his side when needed.
