Napoleon Dynamite Series

Jon Heder is returning to his comfort zone.

While he dropped out of a Will Ferrell-produced pilot for Comedy Central earlier this year, the actor will be lending his voice to Napoleon Dynamite, an animated series based on the 2004 cult-favorite comedy.

Fox has ordered up six episodes of the half-hour sitcom and the original main cast is said to be onboard for voice work. The O.G. players included Efren Ramirez as Pedro, Tina Majorino as Deb, Aaron Ruell as Kip and Jon Gries as Uncle Rico.

If Fox handles its bow staff right, this could be a sweet show.
