Allison Janney lends her voice to Fox's animated comedy The Pitts, which is based on the short-lived 2003 live-action comedy series and chronicles the adventures of the unluckiest family in the world. Emmy winner Janney will voice the mom, Liz Pitt.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dylan Baker and Lizzy Caplan, who starred in the live-action series, previously signed on to reprise their roles as father Bob Pitt and daughter Liz. Also in October, Andy Milonakis was cast as Petey, the son.

With Janney on board, the animated project will do a table read next week. If that goes well, The Pitts will be ordered straight to series.
