Amid a bidding war involving multiple networks, Fox has made a pilot production buy for "The Last Man on Earth," a comedy from "Saturday Night Live" veteran Will Forte, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
The project, which will be written and executive produced by Forte, is about two strangers who need to work together to ensure the human race continues. Forte isn’t currently slated to star in the project.
Forte’s producing partners Phil Lord and Chris Miller will also executive produce. It’s the second sale for Lord and Miller after the pair signed a three-year deal with 20th TV earlier this year, the piece notes.
