Central Park Review 2020 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Creators: Loren Bouchard, Josh Gad, Nora Smith
Stars: Kristen Bell, Tituss Burgess, Daveed Diggs
This musical valentine to urban life, from the creator of “Bob’s Burgers,” is another TV show that has new resonance in the pandemic era. But for once that relevance is delightful, not depressing.
New York City needs its parks in any summer, but never more than now. Shared spaces of play, sun, respite and peace (and yes, conflict and judgment) are reminders in a time of distancing that we are all in this together.
Likewise, “Central Park” is the show we need right now, even if its makers couldn’t have anticipated how and why. It arrives Friday on Apple TV Plus, and it’s as well-timed as the Mister Softee truck on a 95-degree scorcher.
This weird, warm, joyful animated sitcom about a park manager and his family, living in Manhattan’s teeming, landscaped backyard, would be a cool treat at any time. In pandemic season, it’s more: a fun, full-throated tribute to public space and the people (and dogs and rats) who share it.
“Central Park” is created by Loren Bouchard and Nora Smith of “Bob’s Burgers,” along with Josh Gad, and it shares several elements with that stalwart Fox sitcom — above all, a fondness for eccentric obsessives with small-scale big dreams.
