Netflix Orders New Show, “Disenchantment”, From Matt Groening

Netflix has given Oregonian, Matt Groening,  a 20-episode order for a new animated comedy, “Disenchantment.”  The adult fantasy comedy is about “life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you,” Groening told Variety.

Matt Groening was born and raised in Portland, then moved to LA in the 1980’s to work at a newspaper.  It was there that he began drawing a comic strip called “Life in Hell.” There has always been speculation that there are many references to Portland and Oregon in Groening’s hit animated show, “The Simpsons“, and three years ago,  Groening finally revealed that Springfield, Oregon, was indeed the inspiration and namesake for the “The Simpsons” Springfield.
