Created and executive-produced by Emmy® Award winner Emily Spivey (The Last Man on Earth, Parks and Recreation, Saturday Night Live) and featuring an all-star voice cast of comedy stars, including Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jillian Bell and Ike Barinholtz, BLESS THE HARTS is a new half-hour animated comedy that follows the Harts, a Southern family that is always broke, and forever struggling to make ends meet. They one day hope to achieve the American dream, but they’re already rich – in friends, family and laughter.
Jenny Hart (Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee Kristen Wiig, Bridesmaids, Saturday Night Live) is a single mother supporting her family working as a waitress in the small town of Greenpoint, NC. While Jenny’s the head of her family, she’s often at odds with, or scheming with, her lottery scratcher-obsessed mother, Betty (Emmy® Award and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Maya Rudolph, The Good Place, Bridesmaids), and her witty, creative daughter, Violet (Emmy® Award nominee Jillian Bell, Workaholics, Fist Fight). Jenny’s doting, eternal optimist boyfriend of 10 years, Wayne Edwards (Ike Barinholtz, Neighbors, Blockers), is the love of her life and a surrogate father to Violet. He’s a charming dreamer who may never hit the big time, but he’s not going to give up the fight. In the end, the Harts may not have much, but they may just have everything they need.
