Emmy Award Winner Hank Azaria Puts Down Roots in BORDERTOWN on FOX

Multiple Emmy Award winner Hank Azaria (THE SIMPSONS) has been cast as BUD BUCKWALD, the lead voice role on BORDERTOWN, the new animated comedy from FAMILY GUY's Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane. Azaria joins the previously announced voice cast of Alex Borstein (FAMILY GUY, "Getting On"), Missi Pyle ("Jennifer Falls," "Gone Girl"), Judah Friedlander ("30 Rock"), Nicholas Gonzalez (SLEEPY HOLLOW) and guest voice Efren Ramirez ("Napoleon Dynamite").

BORDERTOWN takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America. Exploring family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink, the series centers on two very different families living in a fictional Southwest desert town on the U.S. - Mexico border. Azaria's BUD BUCKWALD is a Married father of three and a Border Patrol agent who is just a tad behind the times and feels slightly threatened by the cultural changes transforming his neighborhood. He lives next door to ERNESTO GONZALEZ (Gonzalez), an ambitious immigrant and family man, who has been in the country less than 10 years, but is already doing better than Bud - which, it turns out, is a bit of an issue for the less-industrious native.

Bud is Married to JANICE BUCKWALD (Borstein), both the wisest and most oblivious member of the family. The Buckwald kids include BECKY (Borstein), a socially awkward, big-boned geek; SANFORD (Friedlander), a loser who thinks he's a player; and GERT (Pyle), a beauty pageant-obsessed five-year-old with a pet pig. Meanwhile, living the American Dream next door are the Gonzalezes, including MARIA, Ernesto's wife; their son, RUIZ (Ramirez); and their 21-year-old nephew, J.C. (Gonzalez), a recent college graduate.
