Earlier this year, we heard that Josh Hutcherson will be leading Hulu’s half-hour comedy pilot, Future Man.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Hulu has now ordered a full series based on the pilot, executive produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
The pilot introduced us to Josh Futterman, played by Hutcherson, who is a “socially inept” janitor. But he’s also “a world-ranked videogamer by night,” and excels in a dystopian game Cybergeddon “where his character, Future Man, has the top ranking in the world; when he beats the final level, he’s visited by characters from the game who claim it’s been his training manual and he’s been selected to travel back in time and help them save the world.”
Cast members on the show include Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings), Derek Wilson (Preacher), Ed Begley Jr. (St. Elsewhere), and Glenne Headley (The Night Of).
