The Last Starfighter—proud dad to a Futurama episode, embarrassed father of Pixels, and possible parent to a series that, in all honestly, will probably miscarry—has sired yet another project about video game skills actually proving good for something. It’s Future Man, a Hulu series that calls out its Last Starfighter lineage while borrowing just as much from the likes of Terminator and Back to the Future. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg executive produce the sci-fi action-comedy. Hunger Games‘s Josh Hutcherson, recently welcomed into the Apatow Freaks & Geeks fold with The Disaster Artist, stars as a laboratory janitor whose gaming skills have made him an asset to fight a future war; as it turns out, his unfortunate career also makes him apt, as the Skynet of this future issomehow rooted in his boss (Keith David) creating a herpes cure. And it looks pretty decent. At least as far as Abreva propaganda goes.
All episodes of Future Man arrive November 14.
