TV show description:
This hybrid live-action/animated comedy revolves around a warrior from a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean – where everything and everyone is animated. He returns to Orange County in California to win back his live-action ex-wife and their teenage son.
Zorn (Jason Sudeikis) is the Defender of Zephyria, Conqueror of the tribes of Agon, and decapitator of the dark herdsmen of Grith. He has fought in countless epic battles throughout his life, but his greatest challenge begins when he travels back to suburbia to reconnect with his family.
Once there, Zorn finds himself estranged from his son, Alangulon or just “Alan” (Johnny Pemberton), a 17-year-old with a mellow, P.C. attitude; and Alan’s mother, Zorn’s ex-wife, Edie (Cheryl Hines), a former wild child now living the life of an upper middle class mom.
Zorn’s efforts to win them back are complicated by the fact that Edie is now engaged to Craig (Tim Meadows), an online psychology professor and a stable presence in their lives. Nevertheless, to be a good dad, Zorn commits to remaining in Orange County for the long haul, renting an apartment and even working in the exciting field of industrial soap sales. His boss, Linda (Artemis Pebdani), appreciates his passion, but just wants him to rein it in at the office.
As he adjusts to life in the suburbs, Zorn is the classic fish out of water, navigating his way through fatherhood, divorce and a boring office job. As an overlord of pain, he defeated glombeasts, wolf-bats, and bloodthirsty arachnobots, but he’s now going toe-to-toe with a new set of enemies — meter maids, dress codes and the DMV.
Episode #13 — All Hail Son of Zorn
Seeing an opportunity to get Linda’s old job back, Zorn increases Sanitation Solutions’ business by tapping into the Zephyrian market. Alan tries to win Layla back by becoming Prom King – with Zorn’s help.
First aired: February 19, 2017.
