Katey Sagal, Ed O’Neill, Christina Applegate and David Faustino are poised to make an animated comeback reprising the Fox characters they played for 11 seasons between 1987 and 1997. Sony Pictures Television is shopping the animated revival to networks and streamers after closing deals with the four actors. Family Guy executive producer Alex Carter has been developing the animated Married… with Children for more than a year. Deadline's Nellie Andreeva reports Fox, Hulu and Peacock are considered logical destinations. "Married… with Children, which aired from 1987-97 on Fox, is a signature series for the network. Considered one of the most influential TV shows in pop culture, it was one of the very first original scripted series on the then-fledgeling network which helped put it on the map and establish its edgy comedy brand," says Andreeva. "What’s more, adult animation is in Fox’s DNA, and. the network has several animated family comedies, most notably juggernauts The Simpsons and Family Guy." But Hulu and Peacock also make sense because they carry the original series.
