EXCLUSIVE: Conservative media outlet The Daily Wire has commissioned its first animated scripted series, Mr Birchum, created by comedian and radio host Adam Carolla

The series follows Carolla’s junior high woodshop teacher popularized on KROQ radio and brought to life in puppet form on Comedy Central’s Crank Yankers.

In this animated update, according to producers, “Mr. Birchum attempts to navigate a world he doesn’t understand or approve of. He’s befuddled by his gaming streamer son, Eddie (Dunnigan), annoyed at his selfie-taking, snowflake students and is constantly at war with the school district’s appointed “J.E.D.I.” (Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion officer) Mr. Karponzi (Fischer).”

The synopsis continues: “But his best buddy, auto-shop teacher Don Gage (Bodden), his wife Wendi (Kelly), and step-daughter Jeanie (Cooper) have his back, along with some fantasy mentors – the ghost of his gym teacher, Coach Murphy (Mohr) and childhood frozen dinner icon Burly Man (Warburton). He’ll even get an assist from sick-and-tired, wishes she were retired, Principal Bortles (Barr) when competing with Navy buddies against his Army nemesis Gunderson (Riggle), and reformed gang member Switchblade (Trejo) lends a tattooed hand building a house for charity.”

The show’s voice cast comprises Carolla (as Mr. Birchum), Megyn Kelly (playing Wendi), Tyler Fischer (Karponzi), Alonzo Bodden (Gage), Brett Cooper (Jeanie), Candace Owens (Deena), Kyle Dunnigan (Eddie), Danny Trejo (Switchblade), Patrick Warburton (Burly Man), Jay Mohr (Coach Murphy), Rob Riggle (Gunderson), and Roseanne Barr (Principal Bortles).

The series will mark talk show host Megyn Kelly’s first role in a scripted series or movie.

DailyWire+’s first animated comedy is produced by David Coleman for Daily Wire and Dallas Sonnier for Bonfire Legend, with Daily Wire’s co-founders Jeremy Boreing and Ben Shapiro and CEO Caleb Robinson are executive producing.

Chassy Media is the physical production Company for the show. Executive Producers for Chassy Media are Adam Carolla and Mike August along with Showrunner/Executive Producer Nate Adams and Supervising Producer Curtis Koller. Mike Lynch is the head writer for the show with additional episodes written by Byron Kavanagh and Mark Hoffmeier.

“I am super excited to be working with my friends Ben Shapiro, Jeremy Boreing, and our terrific cast of talent to bring Mr Birchum to life on the Daily Wire!” said Carolla.

“We teamed up with Adam and some of the funniest people we know – Roseanne, Rob Riggle, Patrick Warburton, Tyler Fischer and so many more – to bring back the irreverent patriarch in a truly hilarious comedy that doesn’t care who it offends,” added The Daily Wire‘s Jeremy Boreing.

A teaser trailer for Mr Birchum screened at the recent premiere of Daily Wire’s controversial new transgender athlete film Ballers. That series stars Daily Wire’s Jeremy Boreing, Jake Crain, Blain Crain, David Cone and Matt Walsh. There are cameos from Ben Shapiro, Brett Cooper, Michael Knowles, Andrew Klavan, Riley Gaines, and Senator Ted Cruz.
