Fox, Cube, & Cohen Team-Up For Rap Toon

Variety is reporting that Futurama co-creator David X. Cohen and Ice Cube are teaming up for a half-hour animated sitcom for Fox called Grandmaster Freak & the Furious 15. The series will be set in Englewood, N.J., which is significant because the city is the birthplace hip-hop pioneer Sugar Hill Records, and will follow the adventures of an early 1980s old-school rap crew with a comically large number of members, whose leader is Grandmaster Flash, a 17-year-old high school student. Cube will likely voice a character, but not that of the title character. Matt Alvarez, an executive producer on the series, said the goal is to find voice actors who have the ability to rap and hopes to have a musical performance in each episode. Cohen created the series, and will he will write and executive produce the series via Cube and producing partner Alverez’s Cube Vision Prods., both Cube and Alverez will serve as executive producers on the series.
