The article reports that actor Eddie Murphy is working in "Father of the Pride," DreamWorks Television's big budget CGI-animated skein set to debut on NBC at the fall of the year 2004. Skein, about a family of white lions who work as performers in the Las Vegas act of illusionists Siegfried & Roy, is one of NBC's big tentpole skeins. Despite Roy Horn's near-fatal run-in with one of his own animals, both Siegfried and Roy remain major characters in "Pride," with actors providing their voices. Pilot episode of "Pride" will subtly acknowledge Horn's accident, but otherwise, the duo are treated as wacky-but-kindhearted CEOs of their own unique empire -- a place where lions and other animals talk to one another but not to humans.
