Will Forte's Fox Comedy Gets Series Order

Former Saturday Night Live star Will Forte has now received a full-series order for Fox’s new single-cam comedy Last Man on Earth, Variety reports. The show will focus on Forte’s character, who will play—you might be able to guess this one—the last man on Earth.

Forte, who created the show, partnered with Phil Lord, Chris Miller (The Lego Movie) and Seth Cohen (The Apprentice) to executive produce the show. Lord and Miller will be directing the pilot episode.

The new television series is expected to start shooting this summer for a debut in 2015. Fox also ordered pilots for two other comedies, Mulaney and Weird Loners, as well as two new dramas, Hieroglyph and Backstrom.
