FOX Announces ‘Son of Zorn’ Series for 2016

son-of-zorn-2016We’re a bit behind on this news, but FOX recently greenlit a new live-action/animated hybrid comedy called SON OF ZORN. Executive produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Last Man On Earth, The LEGO Movie), the series looks to leverage its parody of retro cartoons like Thundarr the Barbarian and Masters of the Universe as a jumping off point to tell the story of Zorn (Jason Sudeikis):

a legendary animated warrior looking to reconnect with his live-action son, Alan (Johnny Pemberton), and ex-wife, Edie (Cheryl Hines), while suffering through a mundane office job and the banality of suburban life, [finding it] harder than waging actual war in his distant, mystical homeland of Zephyria.

“This is utterly unique, there has literally never been a show like this. And, of course, it is very, very funny,” said David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. I’m guessing he’s never seen Who Framed Roger Rabbit? or he’s referring to the whole ancient barbarian meets modern-day son schtick. Either way this sounds promising and I look forward to seeing more when Son of Zorn debuts during the 2016-2017 season.
