(CBS) Glenn Beck, TV personality, political pundit, self-proclaimed comedian and now cartoon creator?

Beck's internet-only network, GBTV, announced Tuesday that it is developing an animated comedy series, according to Reuters.

GBTV is partnering with Icebox, a production company whose writers have worked on shows including "The Simpsons," "South Park," and "King of the Hill," according to Entertainment Weekly.

Beck launched GBTV after he left Fox News. Beck's online network's programming includes a children's program called "Liberty Tree House," and a comedic news show called the "The B.S. of A," as well as his own live two-hour show weekdays at 5 p.m., reports Reuters.

The network's new animated show has no main concept yet.
