The Last Man on Earth Is Coming To Dave
US comedy The Last Man on Earth is coming to Dave.
The Will Forte post-apocalyptic comedy was a surprise hit of the 2014-5 season, making its debut on Sunday, March 1 to 5.75 million viewers with an average 2.4 rating among adults aged 18-49.
The series stars Will Forte as Phil Miller, a man who thinks he is the last man on Earth following the outbreak of a deadly virus. He looks desperately for other survivors before finally finding and marrying a strange woman with whom he hopes he can repopulate the Earth. The next day, he realises other humans survived the disaster.
General Manager for Dave, Steve North, said: “It’s fantastic to have such a great show coming to Dave, there has been so much hype surrounding it in the US. The witty humour and inventive storylines makes The Last Man on Earth a perfect fit for the channel, as we continue to grow our slate of US scripted comedy.”
The Last Man on Earth will air on Dave in August.
