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 of which will also direct the pilot. Seth Cohen executive produce as well.
“Last Man on Earth” will go into production this summer for the 2014-15 broadcast season. It will be a midseason release.
Forte is repped by UTA, Mosaic and Hansen Jacobson. He 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 film, “Nebraska.”
