95% of airline pilots, 92% of Fortune CEOs, and 85% of government officials… are all gone.
The live-action “Y: The Last Man” comic book adaptation has finally happened and will be arriving Monday, September 13, exclusively on FX on Hulu.
A teaser just started the countdown to the end of the world, sharing the haunting aforementioned statistics. This all leads to the extinction of all men, except for one.
Based on the DC Comics series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, and published by Vertigo between 2002 and 2008, “Y: The Last Man traverses a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event has decimated every male mammal save for one lone human. The new world order of women will explore gender, race, class and survival.”
Eliza Clark (Animal Kingdom) serves as the showrunner of the series, which has a cast including Olivia Thirlby, Diane Lane, Ben Schnetzer, Amber Tamblyn and Ashley Romans.
The season features ten episodes in total, and the first *two* premiere on 9/13.
FX notes, “All episodes of the season will be directed by women and the production has a significant number of female department heads, including both DPs, the production designer, costume designer, casting director, editors, stunt coordinator and more.”
