Regular Show, the Cartoon Network series that was sort of a kid-friendly stoner comedy about a bird and a raccoon, just ended its run recently, and Deadline is reporting that TBS has given the greenlight to a new animated series from Regular Show creator J.G. Quintel. Titled Close Enough, the show is “a surreal take on transitioning from twentysomething to thirtysomething,” and it’s about a married couple dealing with “everyday challenges” like “parenthood, friendship, ham theft, stripper clowns and choosing the right day care.” Compared to some of the stuff on Regular Show, that doesn’t actually sound too weird.
In addition to Close Enough, TBS has also picked up an untitled series from comedy troupe The Dress Up Gang. That one is about “a responsible adult with the temperament and outlook of a child” who lives with a “dad-like thirtysomething who has been crashing on his couch for quite some time.” That doesn’t sound quite as zany as the other show, but it does count Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim among its executive producers.
