Fox is really feeling the high concept comedy vibe from Lord and Miller.
Already, Phil Lord and Chris Miller have Last Man on Earth at the network, which has proven itself a keeper for two seasons. Now, Fox is doubling down by having another pilot from the duo that mixes sci-fi and comedy, though dealing with time travel rather than what happens after the world ends.
Adam Pally will star in Making History as computer science professor that doesn’t seem to get along with family or students, but discovers time travel. He and two other friends will venture through time inevitably disrupting their lives in the present.
Oddly enough, Eliza Coupe, another Happy Endings alum, just got cast in a Hulu pilot that also deals with time travel.
