"Modern Family" star Ty Burrell has been roped in as a series regular opposite Amy Poehler in animated comedy series "Duncanville".

"Duncanville" revolves around a "spectacularly average" 15-year-old boy named Duncan and his family and friends. Poehler will lend her voice to Duncan, as well as his "high-strung" mother Annie, a parking enforcement officer who dreams of someday being a detective.

According to variety.com, Burrell will voice the character of Jack, Duncan's father and Annie's husband.

Jack is described as a classic rock-obsessed plumber who is determined to be a better father than the one he had.

The 13-episode series, which hails from former "Simpsons" writers Mike and Julie Scully, is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Universal Television and Poehler's Paper Kite banner.

"Duncanville" is slated to premiere as part of Fox's 2019-2020 season line-up.
