A new FOX series...
Coming Soon reports that Hank Azaria (The Simpsons) will voice Bud Buckwald in FOX's new series Bordertown, which was created by Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy). Other members of the voice cast include Alex Borstein (Family Guy, Getting On), Missi Pyle (Jennifer Falls, Gone Girl), Judah Friedlander (30 Rock), Nicholas Gonzalez (Sleepy Hollow) and guest voice Efren Ramirez (Napoleon Dynamite).
Here's a synopsis: "Bordertown" takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America. Exploring family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink, the series centers on two very different families living in a fictional Southwest desert town on the U.S. - Mexico border. Azaria's Bud Buckwald is a married father of three and a Border Patrol agent who is just a tad behind the times and feels slightly threatened by the cultural changes transforming his neighborhood. He lives next door to Ernesto Gonzales (Gonzalez), an ambitious immigrant and family man, who has been in the country less than 10 years, but is already doing better than Bud - which, it turns out, is a bit of an issue for the less-industrious native. Bud is married to Janice Buckwald (Borstein), both the wisest and most oblivious member of the family. The Buckwald kids include Becky (Borstein), a socially awkward, big-boned geek; Sanford (Friedlander), a loser who thinks he's a player; and Gert (Pyle), a beauty pageant-obsessed five-year-old with a pet pig. Meanwhile, living the American Dream next door are the Gonzalezes, including Maria, Ernesto's wife; their son, Ruiz (Ramirez); and their 21-year-old nephew, J.C. (Gonzalez), a recent college graduate.
The series is produced by 20th Century Fox TV. It was created and written by Hentemann, who will executive produce with MacFarlane, Alex Carter (Family Guy) and Dan Vebber (American Dad, Futurama). Consulting producers include Lalo Alcaraz (La Cucaracha) and Gustavo Arellano (¡Ask a Mexican!), with Valentina L. Garza (The Simpsons) as the supervising producer.
