Fox Orders Hybrid Comedy ‘Son of Zorn’

Fox TV has placed an order for new animation and live-action hybrid comedy series Son of Zorn, which it plan to premiere in the 2016/17 season. The writing, directing and producing duo Chris Miller and Phil Lord — who have extensive experience in both the toon and live realms, recently writing/directing The LEGO Movie and executive producing Fox’s The Last Man on Earth — will serve as executive producers on Zorn.

The series cast is lead by Jason Sudeikis, who voices the animated Zorn — a legendary warrior who returns to Earth after a10 year absence and struggles to rebuild a relationship with his live-action son Alan (played by Johnny Pemberton) and ex-wife, Edie (Cheryl Hines). Family drama, a soul crushing office job and the banality of suburban life are a tougher task than waging war in his mystical homeland of Zephyria for Zorn. SNL alum Tim Meadows also stars in the show.

“This is utterly unique – there has literally never been a show like this. And, of course, it is very, very funny,” Fox Ent. president David Madden said in a statement. “The fantastically talented duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller are yet again delivering precedent-setting television. Jason Sudeikis makes his animated character sound and feel live-action, and Cheryl, Johnny and Tim have incredible chemistry with him that crosses formats, genres and galaxies.”
