The actor plays the last man on Earth in a series he created called ... Last Man On Earth.
FOX has placed a series order for Last Man On Earth, created by and starring Will Forte as the – get this – last man on Earth.
The single-camera comedy will be executive-produced by Forte (Nebraska, Saturday Night Live), Phil Lord, and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie). The latter two will also direct the pilot.
Last Man On Earth will go into production this summer for the 2014-15 broadcast season.
It will be a mid-season release.
Forte was recently nominated for a Film Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actor and was named Best Supporting Actor by the National Board of Review for his work on the Oscar-nominated Nebraska.
Forte can next be seen starring alongside Jennifer Aniston, Mos Def and John Hawkes in Life Of Crime, as well Squirrel To The Nuts, starring Aniston and Owen Wilson. – Reuters
