Fox is developing Saloon, an animated comedy from writers Elliot Kalan (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), Jenny Jaffe, and Fox Entertainment-owned SideCar Content Accelerator, run by Gail Berman. If the project goes to production, it likely will be done in partnership with animated house Bento Box, which Fox Entertainment recently acquired.
