FALL TV PREVIEW Future Man EP Seth Rogen, Cast Discuss That Pilot Scene — Video

Hulu’s Future Man (releasing all episodes on Tuesday, Nov. 14) makes quite a splash in its series premiere — and TVLine’s Michael Ausiello needs to get to the bottom of it.

The sci-fi comedy, from executive producer Seth Rogen, stars Hunger Games alum Josh Hutcherson as a “dope” janitor who, as he describes, “travels through time trying to save all of humanity.” And in the pilot, his character can be seen, shall we say, releasing a bodily fluid, which makes contact with Preacher‘s Derek Wilson. We know what the substance is supposed to be… but what was actually being used on set?

“It was real,” Happy Endings grad Eliza Coupe deadpans, before praising Hutcherson and Wilson for their work as “method” actors. Rogen also proves to be a giant tease, saying the sticky substance is actually “corpse juice.” (We’ll let you press PLAY on the video Q&A to get a detailed description of what exactly “corpse juice” is, but let’s just say it’s so foul that it isn’t even defined by Urban Dictionary.)

Also detailed in the interview above (shot last month at San Diego Comic-Con): Rogen discusses Future Man‘s origins as a movie script, and what allowed it to transition into a full-fledged TV series. Plus, find out what comment drives Ausiello to tell Coupe that she’s taken things too far.

Josh Hutcherson Leaves Panem Behind For Seth Rogen's Show About "Time Travel and STDs"
I'm trying to think of a succinct way of describing the plot of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's new TV show, Future Man, starring Josh Hutcherson, and this is all I've got: Hutcherson is a janitor at a lab and ends up traveling back in time with two warriors from the future (who are also somehow in a video game he plays?) to stop his boss at the lab from ever getting herpes. Because the herpes cure his boss eventually discovers goes on to destroy mankind. Mmhmm.

As, um, out there as it sounds, the trailer is pretty promising. Not only that, but the cast is killer: Hutcherson, Ed Begley Jr., Happy Endings’s Eliza Coupe, Preacher’s Derek Wilson, and more. To celebrate the release of the trailer at New York Comic-Con, Rogen tweeted, “Here’s the trailer for FUTURE MAN, our new TV show about time travel and saving the world and also STD’s!” Honestly, that’s a TV show tagline I can get behind.

All episodes of Future Man drop on Hulu on Nov. 14.(x)
