Aubrey Plaza has landed the role she was “born to play” as she stars as “baby mama” to Danny DeVito‘s Satan in a new FXX animated comedy series.

Little Demon revolves around a reluctant mother (Plaza) who was impregnated by the devil (Danny DeVito) and now has to look after their Antichrist daughter (played by Lucy DeVito, the daughter of the It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia star and fellow actor).

Per the logline, the mother and daughter “attempt to live an ordinary life in Delaware but are constantly thwarted by monstrous forces, including Satan, who yearns for custody of his daughter’s soul.”

The series, created by Darcy Fowler, Seth Kirschner and Kieran Valla and executive produced by Dan Harmon (Rick & Morty), has been in the works for over a year. It is set to premiere first on FXX, where it will join the network’s animated slate alongside Archer and short-form anthology series Cake. Repeat viewings will be able to stream the following day on FX on Hulu.
