What would you do if you were the last man on earth? Phil Miller has some answers. Written by and starring Will Forte,(Phil) The Last Man On Earth is a humorous but serious look at a man trying to hold onto his sanity in a world without restraints,consequences,or people.If the initial episodes are any indication of the shows future,Fox may have a hit on their hands. Let’s face it, if you’re the last man on earth, it stands to reason you’re going to have some fun and a few laughs…that is until the loneliness sets in. The pilot delivered plenty of dry humor, but it was nice to see the show maintained a sense of surrealism. Will Forte who’s no stranger to comedy(SNL,American Dad, 30 Rock)seems to have his eye on the ball as far as the writing is concerned. I’m looking forward to future episodes. Indeed, The Last Man On Earth is post-apocalyptic humor at it’s best.
The Last Man On Earth premiers on Fox Sunday,March 1st at 9/8c .
From writer/producer Will Forte (“Nebraska,” “Saturday Night Live”) and directors/producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord (“The Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street”), THE LAST MAN ON EARTH is a new single-camera comedy that chronicles the life and adventures of an average guy – and humanity’s last hope – who discovers what life is like when no one is telling you what you can and cannot do.
The year is 2020, and after a deadly virus has swept the planet, only one man is left on earth: PHIL MILLER (Forte). He used to be just an average guy who loved his family and hated his job. Now, in his RV, Phil searches the country for other survivors. He has traveled to every city, every town and every outpost in the United States, Mexico and Canada, and has found no one. As he returns to his hometown of Tucson, Phil comes to the painful realization that he is almost certainly the last living being on the face of the earth. All he wants is for someone – anyone – to find him in Tucson – preferably a woman.
Be careful what you wish for, Phil…
