Flame throwers and steam- rollers? Again, it's a strange concept, but Fox is really behind the show. As if engag- ing in a multi-network bidding war for the rights to the show's pilot wasn't dedication enough to the idea, a few months after it won the bid, Fox completely skipped the pilot episode process and ordered a full season without airing a single episode. "It's been really fun and exciting because it's such a weird concept and Fox has really embraced it, giving us their full support," Forte said. "Trying to figure out how to tell a story with one person has been an incredible chal- lenge, but also a really excit- ing challenge. Figuring out how to do it all has been real- ly, really fun.

Just dumb stuff like that, which pretty much is all it takes to make me happy." By Cassie Dresch TV Media H ello? Hi? Anybody out there? Of course there is, otherwise life would be very, very, very lonely. Fox is taking a stab at the ultimate life of loneliness in the new half- hour comedy "The Last Man on Earth," premiering Sunday, March 1. The premise around "Last Man" is a simple one, albeit a little strange. An average, unassuming man is on the hunt for any signs of other liv- ing people after a virus takes out all of Earth's population. His family is gone, his cowork- ers are gone, the president is gone. Everyone. Gone. So what does he do? He travels the United States doing Wishbone Restaurant 2 x 6.5" TV March 1 - 7, 2015 TIFTAREA Will Forte stars in "The Last Man on Earth" SUNDAY DAYTIME MARCH 1, 2015 10 AM 10:30 11 AM 11:30 12 PM 12:30 1 PM 1:30 2 PM 2:30 3 PM 3:30 4 PM 4:30 5 PM 5:30 6 PM 6:30 BROADCAST CHANNELS
