Imagine a mash-up between The Last Starfighter, Back to the Future, and Terminator, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of the premise behind Hulu’s new time travel comedy, Future Man. From the minds of Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, the writers who brought Sausage Party to the big screen, Future Man tells the story of Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson of The Hunger Games), a janitor by day/gamer by night who is recruited by mysterious visitors to travel through time in order to prevent the extinction of humanity.
Future Man Release Date
Future Man will drop all 13 of its episodes on Hulu’s streaming service on November 14, 2017.
Future Man Trailer
The first official trailer for Future Man coming out of New York Comic Con 2017 definitely gives viewers an in-depth view of the show’s premise, but it also highlights the various homages given to the films that inspired the series. You can almost see Hutcherson as Marty McFly.
An earlier promo for Future Man that came out of San Diego Comic Con 2017 shows director/producer Seth Rogen riffing with Hutcherson.
Future Man also features the talents of Eliza Coupe (Casual) as Tiger and Derek Wilson (Preacher) as Wolf, the two travelers from the future who seek help from Josh, mistakenly relying on skills he displayed in a video game. In one of her last performances before her death, Glenne Headly plays Josh’s mother alongside Ed Begley, Jr. as Josh’s father.
Ben Karlin (Modern Family) will act as Future Man’s showrunner and will executive produce alongside Matt Tolmach and James Weaver as well as directors Seth Rogen and Adam Goldberg.
