Phil Lord and Chris Miller Are Developing an Animated/Live-Action Hybrid Comedy for Fox

phillord_chrismillerLego Movie team Phil Lord and Chris Miller have a new show in the works at Fox, and it’s a weird one. According to THR, the two are currently developing an animated/live-action hybrid comedy called Son of Zahn, which will follow “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.” 21/22 Jump Street‘s Johnny Pemberton will play Zahn’s teenage son Alan, and production on the pilot starts this summer.

In addition to Son of Zahn, Lord and Miller have a ton of upcoming projects including 23 Jump Street, the Lego Movie sequel, and another season of The Last Man on Earth.
