Fox has unveiled the first trailer for The Last Man on Earth, a post-apocalyptic comedy series from executive producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller (directors of 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie). Will Forte (MacGruber, Nebraska) stars as the titular character, the very last man left on earth. It’s an amusing trailer, calmly taking us through the day to day activities of this lonely soul. It’s going to be interesting to see how the plot is padded out to cover an entire series. There’s not too much to go on in terms of the trailer, but anything with Lord and Miller attached (they also direct the pilot episode) has to be worth checking out.
Official synopsis for The Last Man on Earth:
Created by and starring Will Forte (“Nebraska,” “Saturday Night Live”) and directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord (“The Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street”), THE LAST MAN ON EARTH is a new single-camera comedy about the life and adventures of the last man on earth. PHIL MILLER (Forte) was once just an average guy who loved his family and hated his job at the bank – now he’s humanity’s last hope. Will he ever find another person alive on the planet? Would hoping that she is a female be asking too much?
The Last Man on Earth is set to premiere on Fox in 2015.
