Focused on a flawed household of people, gods and beasts that attempts to run among the worlds first cities without killing each other. Totally owned and financed by FOX Entertainment, the funny will be produced by its Emmy Award-winning animation studio, Bento Box Entertainment. Additionally, KRAPOPOLIS will work as the first-ever animated series curated entirely on the Blockchain, as FOX and Bento Box get in the NFT service.
