Created by and starring Forte, the single-camera sitcom finds the comic actor playing — yep — the last man on Earth. (I’m guessing there’s more to the premise, but Fox is being super-secretive.)

The network is eyeing a Midseason 2015 launch for the series, which is being exec produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street), who will also direct the premiere.
