The newest addition to FOX's Sunday Animation Domination lineup, "Bob's Burgers" opens Sunday, Jan. 9 (8:30 p.m. ET/PT) on FOX. The series follows a third-generation restaurateur, Bob (H. Jon Benjamin), as he runs Bob's Burgers with the help of his wife and their three kids. Bob has big ideas about burgers, condiments and sides, but only a few thoughts on customer service and business management. Despite his greasy counters, lousy location and occasionally spotty service, Bob is convinced his burgers speak for themselves.
Even though business is slow, Bob gets to work with his family. His wife, Linda (John Roberts), supports Bob's dream through thick and thin (but truth be told, she's getting a little sick of the thin). Their eldest daughter, Tina (Dan Mintz), is a 13-year-old hopeless romantic with minimal social skills. Middle child Gene (Eugene Mirman) is an aspiring musician and a prankster who serves up more jokes than burgers. Their youngest, Louise (Kristen Schaal), is the most enthusiastic about her dad's business, but an off-balance sense of humor makes her somewhat of a liability in the kitchen.
"Bob's Burgers" is a 20th Century Fox Television production. The series was created by Loren Bouchard ("Home Movies"). Bouchard and Jim Dauterive ("King of the Hill") serve as executive producers and writers. Anthony Chun ("King of the Hill") directed the pilot.
