For now, it seems like Flight of the Conchords, the musical/comedy duo Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement are taking a hiatus. Clement appeared as the villain in Men in Black 3 and voiced the character Nigel in the Rio animated films. McKenzie, on the other hand, won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Man or Muppet” from 2011′s The Muppets, and he’s returning to handle the music duties for the Muppet sequel, Muppets Most Wanted. While McKenzie is busy with songwriting for films, he’s also set to produce a new animated series for Fox.
According to TV Guide, McKenzie’s new animated TV series is a workplace comedy that will follow “the exploits of a group of employees toiling away at an almost-obsolete NASA space center in Boulder, Colorado.” Although McKenzie will produce the new series with King of the Hill writer/producers Tony Gama-Lobo and Rebecca May, he has not yet committed to voicing any of its characters, but according to the entertainment outlet, it remains a possibility.
