What they’re saying:

  • Lizzie and Wendy Molyneux: “We’re really grateful and excited to remain here at our creative home and to keep working with Jonnie, Dana, Peter and Howard. They’ve always been incredibly supportive even though we’ve been perfectly open about the fact that every single one of our scripts is actually written by our mom, Sue.”
  • Jonnie Davis, President of Creative Affairs, 20th Century Fox TV: “Wendy and Lizzie are hilarious writers who have had a long history with this studio and we are so glad this will now formally become their exclusive home,” added. They’ve been incredible contributors to our gem, Bob’s Burgers, Loren loves them and our head of animation Marci Proietto has been their champion, for good reason. It’s no accident that their new animated series in the works for Fox attracted an all-star voice cast; it’s just that special, as are they.”
