According to C21 Media, Ozzy Osbourne and his family will voice stop-motion animated versions of themselves in a new TV comedy sitcom called “The F’n Osbournes”. Canada’s Cuppa Coffee Studios is producing the 20-episode series, which is being executive-produced by Ozzy‘s wife/manager Sharon and his son, Jack.
“Teaming up with Cuppa Coffee has spawned a great opportunity to produce a unique animated prime-time show. I’ve been excited about animating our often crazy lives for a while now,” said Sharon Osbourne. Meanwhile, Jack Osbourne, who, along with his mother, will be involved in developing the show’s scripts, promised the program would be “a radical and humorous new spin on our family.”
Adam Shaheen, founder of Cuppa Coffee, said, “Although it is a cartoon, it’s certainly not one for little kids, bearing in mind the family that are at the root of it.”
The BLACK SABBATH frontman and his family quickly became household names when their MTV show became a surprise hit in 2002.
The series’ fourth and final season aired in 2005 consisted of 10 episodes chronicling Ozzy‘s bout with insomnia, daughter Kelly‘s drug rehab, her budding commercial TV career, and a family vacation to Hawaii.
