Amy Poehler attended the 2019 Summer TCA earlier today (August 7) to talk about her new animated series Duncanville. Our gallery has been updated with photos from the panel and you can read articles about it in our press library!
Amy Poehler, co-creator, writer and executive producer of Duncanville, said The Simpsons occupies a special place for her and her pre-teen children. The series “was one of the first shows we watched together and laughed at the same things for the same reasons,” she said, dryly adding, “They like a lot of things that I don’t think are funny.”
Ike Barinholtz, one of the voice actors on Duncanville, responded to Poehler, “You mean you don’t like unboxing videos?!”
Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who are executive producers of Bless the Harts, joked that it would be a “cage match” between the new shows and The Simpsons. Lord recalled bonding with Miller after the latter had VHS tapes of the show flown to the Dartmouth College campus, whose Hanover, NH, setting lacked a Fox TV affiliate.
