|If Graham Roumieu's Bigfoot was announcing this, it would look like the above picture.|
Roumieu, whose illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Progressive, reveals the hairy hominids's brave struggles with eating disorders, casual cannibalism, and philosophical quandaries ("Me once believe in good. Now, no. World go shit, like Bigfoot screenwriting career.").
Recently it has been announced that these hilarious quips and quandaries will be translated into an animated series on FX. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and "American Dad" writer Matt McKenna is on board to develop the project.

FX is looking for Bigfoot.
FX Announces New Network to Launch in September
The cable network is developing an animated comedy based on the faux autobiography books by Graham Roumieu, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
From FX Productions, Bigfoot is an adaption of Roumieu's comedic works In Me Own Words, Me Write Book and I Not Dead and follows Bigfoot, who is described as a bipolar hopeless romantic who lacks the ability to properly express himself, living in both the human and animal world of Pine Falls but not quite fitting in to either one.

American Dad writer/supervising producer Matt McKenna will write and executive produce the project. Point Grey Pictures' Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg also are on board to serve as EPs. The Jimmy Miller Co. and Floyd County Productions also will executive produce alongside Roumieu.
For FX, should the project move forward, it would join a roster that includes Archer and Unsupervised -- which also hail from Floyd County Productions.
The news comes as FX is preparing to launch comedy-themed offshoot network FXX, which will house half-hours including It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League and Legit, when it bows in September.
It's too early to say whether Bigfoot will air on FX or FXX.
