Hilarious SON OF ZORN Comic-Con Trailer and Panel Highlight Videos
Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s new comedy series Son of Zorn looks absolutely hilarious. This is one of my most anticipated series of the year because it is so different and unique from any other comedy series that is currently in production.
During Comic-Con this past weekend Fox premiered a new trailer for the series, which brought a huge smile on my face. That trailer has been released online alone with a couple videos featuring some of the highlights from the panel. You’ve gotta check this stuff out because it’s just great crazy comedy!
Son of Zorn features the voice of Jason Sudeikis, and the series is a hybrid live-action/animated comedy about “an animated warrior from a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean – where everything and everyone is animated – who returns to Orange County, CA, to win back his live-action ex-wife and teenage son. ZORN (Sudeikis), the Defender of Zephyria, Conqueror of the tribes of Agon, decapitator of the dark herdsmen of Grith, has fought in countless epic battles throughout his life, but may find the greatest challenge of all when travels back to suburbia to reconnect with his family”.
Once there, Zorn finds himself estranged from his son, ALANGULON or just “Alan” (Johnny Pemberton, “21 Jump Street”), a 17-year-old with a mellow, P.C. attitude; and Alan’s mother, Zorn’s ex-wife, EDIE (Cheryl Hines, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”), a former wild child now living the life of an upper middle class mom. Zorn’s efforts to win them back are complicated by the fact that Edie is now engaged to CRAIG (Tim Meadows, “Saturday Night Live”), an online psychology professor and a stable presence in their lives. Nevertheless, to be a good dad, Zorn commits to remaining in Orange County for the long haul, renting an apartment and even working in the exciting field of industrial soap sales under his boss, LINDA (Artemis Pebdani, “Scandal,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”), who likes his passion, but just wants him to rein it in at the office. As he adjusts to life in the suburbs, Zorn is the classic fish out of water, navigating his way through fatherhood, divorce and a boring office job. Sure, as an overlord of pain, he defeated glombeasts, wolf-bats and bloodthirsty arachnobots, but now he’ll go toe-to-toe with a new set of enemies: meter maids, dress codes and the DMV.
This series has the potential to be one of the greatest things ever and I can’t wait to see it!
