News just announced on FishbowlLA confirms that Fox are working on an animated series based on the 2004 cult hit Napoleon Dynamite, with Jared and Jerusha Hess, the husband and wife team who wrote and directed the movie, closely involved in the development of the project.

It's also expected that most of the original actors will reunite to supply voices, including Jon Heder (Napoleon), Aaron Ruell (Napoleon's brother Kip) and John Gries (Uncle Rico). Little is known about what storyline the series will have but, seeing as the the movie didn't seem to have one anyway, that probably won't be an issue.
