Melissa Fumero (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Beck Bennet (“Saturday Night Live”), Sam Richardson (“Veep”), Wendi McLendon-Covey (“The Goldbergs”), Jon Daly (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Ben Schwartz (“House of Lies”) and Aimee Garcia (“Lucifer”) will join Patton Oswalt in the animated supervillain adult-centric family sitcom “M.O.D.O.K.” for Marvel TV Studios and Hulu.
Oswalt plays the constantly foiled Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing in this series which follows the extremely dysfunctional home life of the ex-A.I.M. member pursuing his dream of one day conquering the world.
But after years of setbacks and failures fighting the Earth’s mightiest heroes, M.O.D.O.K. has run his evil organization A.I.M. into the ground. Ousted as A.I.M.’s leader, while also dealing with his crumbling marriage and family life, the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing is set to confront his greatest challenge yet: a midlife crisis.
Garcia will play Jodie, M.O.D.O.K.’s wife pursuing her mommy-blog turned lifestyle-brand empire and discovering who she is as an independent woman in her forties.
Schwartz will portray M.O.D.O.K.’s 12-year-old son Lou who lacks friends, ambition and hygiene but is overly confident.
Fumero will portray Melissa, M.O.D.O.K.’s 17-year-old daughter and queen bee of her school along with being a star in the world of teen figure skating.
McLendon-Covey is Monica Rappaccini, a brilliant mad-scientist at A.I.M. and M.O.D.O.K.’s rival at work. Clearly more competent and qualified, Monica believes she should be running the organization.
Bennet portrays Austin Van Der Sleet, the post-merger-integration-consultant for silicon valley tech-giant GRUMBL which has acquired A.I.M.
Daly plays Super Adaptoid, a snarky android with ambitions to live, feel and create, but is instead forced to spend his days massaging the hoverchair sores on his creator M.O.D.O.K.’s scalp.
Richardson, is Gary, a henchman at A.I.M. who is fiercely loyal to his boss M.O.D.O.K., even if M.O.D.O.K. struggles to remember his name.
“M.O.D.O.K.” will be executive produced by Oswalt and is slated to premiere later this year. With the announcement comes the news that Marvel Television has been rebranded as Marvel TV Studios.
