Further, there is also currently an official website for the upcoming show, though it only contains a meta interview with Jim, the character. While most of this interview consists of Jim joking around, likely setting the tone for what the series intends, he does reveal slight bits of notable information. The intended audience seems to be general, catered to both children and adults. He also constantly insists that this depiction of him will be quite different from prior iterations, so there will likely be some fan division in that regard.
