Following its upfront presentation for the 2016-2017 television season, FOX has unveiled the first trailer for their series ‘Son of Zorn’, the latest venture from iconic comedy duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The all new live-action/2D-animated hybrid series will be executive produced by the pair, who are behind a string of hit films including ‘The LEGO Movie’, ’21 Jump Street’, and ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’.
Upon arriving home on Earth for the first time in 10 years, Zorn (the voice of Jason Sudeikis, The Last Man On Earth, Saturday Night Live), a fully animated, legendary warrior, finds that reconnecting with his live-action son, Alan (Johnny Pemberton, 21 Jump Street), and ex-wife, Edie (Cheryl Hines, Curb Your Enthusiasm), while suffering through a mundane office job and the banality of suburban life, is harder than waging actual war in his distant, mystical homeland of Zephyria. Tim Meadows (Saturday Night Live) also stars. The series is scheduled to debut during the 2016-2017 season.
‘Son of Zorn’ is produced by 20th Century Fox Television from a pilot by Reed Agnew and Eli Jorne (Wilfred). Lord and Miller will co-produce the series alongside Seth Cohen (The Last Man on Earth), with Agnew and Jorne serving as showrunners. Eric Appel (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) is director and will also co-executive produce.
