    Hulu Orders Animated Comedy Standing By Starring Dan Levy
    Hulu has ordered a presentation for Standing By, an animated comedy
    from Schitt's Creek co-creator, executive producer, and star Dan
    Levy, according to a recent report from Deadline.

    The comedy comes from Levy, writer-director Ally Pankiw, and
    20th Television Animation, with Levy also lending his voice to one
    of the lead characters in the project. According to the report,
    Standing By is a satirical look into the lives of a group of
    eternally bound, disgruntled guardian angels and the lessons they
    learn from the humans they're in charge of protecting, as well as
    each other.

    Levy will reportedly voice Carey, a newly deceased spotter to the
    group that led a lonely, isolated life in New York City. Levy and
    Pankiw will write and executive produce.

    The order from Hulu sees the streaming giant continue to try and
    push their way into the adult animation lane, with Solar Opposites
    already occupying some space on the service.

    Levy and Pankiw will both take to the project after coming out of
    an incredibly successful run on Schitt's Creek. The series was a
    huge hit amongst audiences, with the final season of the series
    setting various records during the 2020 Emmy Awards, and Levy
    himself winning four awards, including one for Supporting Actor in
    a Comedy Series. Pankiw most recently directed the six-episode
    Netflix series Feel Good, and also is a director and executive
    producer on NBC's comedy pilot Someone Out There.
