Phil Lord and Chris Miller Developing Animated/Live-Action Comedy Series SON OF ZAHN
Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street, The Last Man of Earth) have found a new TV project to develop. It's an animated/live-action comedy series called Son o Zahn, and it is being developed for Fox. The news comes from THR, who offers up some details on the series:
The 8 to 10 minute pilot presentation will center on an animated Barbarian father who comes home for the first time in 10 years to his live-action son and ex-wife. He finds that reconnecting with his family, struggling through his mundane office job and dealing with the banality of suburban life is much harder than waging actual war in his distant, animated world.
That's a fascinating concept that could prove to be hilarious. The series has already cast one of the live action characters. Johnny Pemberton (21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street) will take on the role of Zahn's moody teenage son.
The pilot is set to start shooting later this summer. In addition to this, Lord and Miller are working on the second season of the Will Forte comedy series The Last Man on Earth, 23 Jump Street, The LEGO Movie sequel, and The Flash.
