Chow-Funh is the TV show you didn’t know you needed in your life until now. The animated series will portray the zany competitiveness of food truck culture, and would be the first-ever “Sci-Foodieomedy” show (we assume that means it’s going to be about funny, delicious, and have sci-fi tendencies).

The show, directed by Gabriel DeFrancesco (The Simpsons, Family Guy), and starring comedian/actress Margaret Cho, Bobby Lee (Mad TV, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle), and Jon Lovitz (Saturday Night Live), has a Kickstarter asking for $120,000 to get the show going. It’s "a mockumentary twist about the competitive world of food trucks."

The show follows the antics of a food truck owner named Colonel Chow (voiced by Bobby Lee), known for his fortune cookies with wisecracking fortunes like “The secret to longevity is spite.” There will also apparently be wormholes, guest appearances, and an arch-enemy who owns the world’s first Michelin-rated food truck.

If they get the money they're seeking, the creators will be able to fund the first three episodes and possibly get picked up by a network. No further details are available.
