The Last Man on Earth is an American post-apocalyptic comedy created by and starring Will Forte.

Plot Edit

The Last Man on Earth chronicles the life and adventures of an average guy - and humanity's last hope - who discovers what life is like when no one is telling you what you can do and cannot do. The year is 2020, one year after a deadly virus has swept the planet, only one man is left on earth: Phil Miller (Will Forte). He used to be just an average guy who loved his family and hated his job. Now, in his RV, Phil Miller searches the country for any other survivors. He has traveled to every city, every town, and every outpost in the United States, Mexico, and Canada, and has found no one. As he returns to his hometown of Tucson, Arizona, Phil comes to the painful realization that he is almost certainly the last living being on the face of the earth.

Background and ProductionEdit

The series originated from the writing team of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who originally had the idea for a feature film. Approaching the concept to Will Forte, he "took it in his own direction". Forte was partially inspired by the series, Life After People. According to Forte, he created a rough draft of the first season over a weekend. They mainly pitched The Last Man on Earth around Hollywood to positive responses. They mainly pitched to cable and internet services, as Forte believed a broadcast network would be stricter on content.

Filming for the series was also difficult. The sounds of cars in the distance and maintaining silence had made it difficult. In addition to Forte's fascination with Life After People, films that also helped inspire the series were The Omega Man, I Am Legend, and 28 Days Later. Fox particulary appreciated the heart of the story, with its universal theme.

According to interviews with the cast, the series is currently filmed in Chatsworth, California and off-site locations.[1]
