Jason Sudeikis and Cheryl Hines will topline Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s animated/live-action hybrid comedy SON OF ZORN. Tim Meadows, Johnny Pemberton, and Sex Tape star Artemis Pebdani will round out the cast of the Fox comedy, which follows an animated Barbarian who finds that reconnecting with his moody, live-action teenage son Alan and ex-wife while suffering a mundane office job and the banality of suburban life is harder than waging actual war in his distant, animated world.
Sudeikis will voice the titular Zorn, while Hines will play Edie, Zorn’s ex-wife, and Meadows will play Edie’s live-in boyfriend. Pemberton will play Alan, Zorn’s teenage son, and Pebdani is Linda, Zorn’s boss at his new play of employment, Sanitation Solutions.
The series was scripted by Wilfred‘s Reed Agnew and Eli Journe, who will also serve as showrunners and executive produce alongside Lord, Miller, and Seth Cohen. Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Eric Appel will direct and co-executive produce for 20th Century Fox TV.
Sudeikis is repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners. WME and Gotham/Principal rep Hines. Meadows is repped by APA and Brillstein Entertainment. Pebdani is represented by Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment. CAA and Principato-Young Entertainment rep Pemberton.
