Chris Rock Voicing ‘Everybody Hates Chris’ Animated Series

Chris Rock will once again narrate the story of his life.

The comedian will be part of the voice cast of Everybody Still Hates Chris, an animated series based on the critically acclaimed UPN/CW comedy Everybody Hates Chris. As with the original, Rock will narrate the show — which is set to premiere on Comedy Central later this year — as his adult self, looking back at events from his childhood.

Terry Crews and Tichina Arnold will also reprise their roles from the live-action series as Chris’ parents, Julius and Rochelle, on the Comedy Central series. Tim Johnson Jr. will play the young Chris, and Ozioma Akagha Terrence Little Gardenhigh will voice his younger siblings, Tonya and Drew. Gunnar Sizemore will play Greg, Chris’ only friend at school.

“I’m very excited to introduce the world to another funny side of my childhood,” said Rock, who also executive produces the series.

Added showrunner and executive producer Sanjay Shah, “I wanted this job to get free tickets to a Chris Rock stand up show, but we ended up making something we’re proud of that is true to the original series we all loved.”
