Deadline Hollywood reports that Fox has picked up an animated series based on the 2004 cult hit "Napoleon Dynamite" for next season.

The network is also ordering an animated series called "Allen Gregory," which is co-written and executive produced by Jonah Hill.

The "Napoleon Dynamite" series will be voiced by the original cast of the film, and the original writers and directors, Jared and Jerusha Hess, adapted the movie for television with the assistance of Mike Scully, a veteran of "The Simpsons." So far, though, Fox has only ordered six episodes of the series, something Deadline claims is frustrating to the producers of the show.
