Fox Unveils Trailers for “Son of Zorn”, “Making History”, and “The Mick”
Two of the new comedies that were announced at Fox’s Upfronts presentation have Lord and Miller’s hands involved and those just happen to be two very enticing high concept comedies.
One, Son of Zorn, puts an animated He-Man type, voiced by Jason Sudeikis, into the 9-5 grind in the real world with Johnny Pemberton as a son, Cheryl Hines as an ex-wife, Tim Meadows as the ex-wife’s fiance, and Artemis Pebdani as his boss. Here’s the trailer.
The other involves Adam Pally as someone who has a time machine and has abused it. Thus, he enlists an accomplished history professor played by Yassir Lester to fix something he might have screwed up in the American Revolution. Here’s the trailer for Making History.
Both make Fox’s live action comedy line-up have a certain high concept sheen already laid out by Last Man on Earth and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
To round out the new series, Fox has a show that is basically a Sweet Dee from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia standalone series. See for yourself in the trailer for The Mick starring Sweet Dee herself, Kaitlin Olson.
All in all, Fox has a lot of promise with this trio.

Time will only tell, but perhaps they’ll even get to South Park or Simpsons territory.
Andy Buckley Finds That He Has ‘Andy Work’ on Top of Being in “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”
Just like Charlie has “Charlie Work” (i.e. demeaning, gross tasks that no one else at the bar wants to do) on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, this latest season of the show has Andy Buckley doing Andy work (i.e. work that Charlie is too dumb, scared, and ignorant to do), unsurprisingly at the behest of Charlie.

Rob McElhenney Set To Direct a “Minecraft” Movie
(via The Wrap)
If you’re thinking that this is like when Chris Miller and Phil Lord took on making a movie out of LEGOs, note that LEGO Movie producer Roy Lee is set to produce this adaptation.
Our last post did feature a parody trailer of a video game film adaptation gone wrong. Yet, we have a little trouble being skeptical of It’s Always Sunny in Phliadelphia’s Rob McElhenney taking on directing an adaptation of the mega successful video game franchise, Minecraft.
The irreverence and brashness of It’s Always Sunny, which Rob not only starred in, but created and wrote, leads us to believe that McElhenney could make a damn fun Minecraft movie.
Maybe they’ll build a lair for Dayman and Nightman?
The Cast of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” Show That They Have Tattoos Just Like Their Fans
OK, Charlie, Mac, Dennis, Dee, and Frank are probably a little more extreme than their fans, but that’s why the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia loyal love them so much.
Certainly, there’s a similarity in the types of tattoos that the cast and fans of the show get, but, true to form, Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, and Rob McElhenney go a little further than their fans.
Watch them show off while on Conan here.

Plan your January accordingly.
FX Orders Comedy Pilot ‘Pariah’ Starring Bill Burr
We don’t know about the rest of you, but are wishes have come true as Bill Burr is set to star in an upcoming FX comedy pilot, Pariah.
Coming from the minds behind It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, specifically, Dave and John Chernin along with Rob McElhenney set to direct, Pariah will center around Burr as a television personality that has a meltdown and then has to try to go through life as a normal person with experience only as a on-camera loudmouth.
So, we’re definitely hoping this goes to series as soon as possible.
Sweet Dee/Kaitlin Olson Joining ‘New Girl’
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
Kaitlin Olson is taking some time away from Paddy’s Pub and the crazed schemes of Mac, Dennis, Charlie, and Frank to now trying to woo Rob Reiner who plays Jess/Zooey Deschanel’s dad. Olson’s character will also be rivals to Jess and Cece as they were at odds with each other since high school.
Perhaps, there will be a nod to Sweet Dee with Kaitlin saying something like “I will eat your babies, bitch!”
