Timothy Hutton has signed on for a key role in FX’s drama pilot “Y,” based on the acclaimed post-apocalyptic sci-fi comic book series “Y: The Last Man”. Hutton will play the U.S. President.
Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra penned the comic about Yorick, a young man who traverses a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event has decimated every male mammal save for himself and his pet monkey.
The new world order of women will explore gender, race, class and survival. Michael Green and Aïda Mashaka Croal serve as showrunners and executive producers. Vaughan, Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson are executive producing.
