“21 Jump Street” and “The LEGO Movie” directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have settled on their next TV project which will be entitled “Son of Zahn”.
The duo have given an 8-10 minute pilot presentation for a hybrid animated/live-action comedy series which centers on an animated Barbarian father who comes home for the first time in ten 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.
Johnny Pemberton (“This Is 40 “) has been cast as Zahn’s moody teenage son, Alan. Reed Agnew and Eli Jorne will serve as co-showrunners and executive producers with the pilot to begin shooting later this summer.
