PITTSBURGH -- There's a new family joining the Sunday night "Animation Domination" lineup on Pittsburgh's FOX 53.

Amy Poehler has teamed up with producers Mike and Julie Scully ("The Simpsons") on "Duncanville," an animated comedy based on a 15-year-old boy with a wild imagination, premiering Sunday, Feb. 16 at 8:30 p.m.

Poehler, the Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner serves as executive producer and the voice of Duncan, the show's main character.

"Duncanville" will feature many recognizable voices and guest stars, including Pittsburgh native and Golden Globe nominee Wiz Khalifa, the rapper, singer, songwriter and actor.

Khalifa, a Taylor Allderdice High School graduate will voice Mr. Mitch, the "universally loved teacher/guidance counselor, occasional gym coach and school nurse, due to budget cuts," FOX Entertainment explains.

FOX Entertainment details the new show...

Like most 15-year-olds, Duncan can see adulthood on the horizon: money, freedom, cars, girls, but the reality is more like: always being broke, driving with your mom sitting shotgun and babysitting your little sister.

He’s not exceptional, but he has a wild imagination in which he’s never anything less than amazing.

Duncan’s mom, Annie (also Poehler), a parking enforcement officer who dreams of someday being a detective, lives in perpetual fear that her teenage son is one bad decision away from ruining his life and will do anything to stop him from doing so.

Duncan’s father, Jack (Ty Burrell), husband to Annie, is a classic-rock-obsessed plumber who’s determined to be a better dad than the one he had. He's constantly posting wonderful things about his family on Facebook and annoyed that his kids won’t friend him.

Duncan’s 12-year-old sister, Kimberly (Riki Lindhome), is awkward, emotional and can hold grudges forever, while waiting patiently for revenge. She’s all emotions all the time and nobody’s problems are bigger than hers.

Watch "Duncanville" Sunday nights at 8:30 p.m. on Pittsburgh's FOX 53.
