The animated horror-comedy Ugly Americans – set in a New York City filled with every beast, creature and freak – follows Mark Lilly (voiced by Matt Oberg), a social worker at the Department of Integration, as he helps new citizens, both human and “other,” adapt to hectic life in the Big Apple. Between his stressful job – which includes weaning vampires off of blood and housebreaking werewolves – a zombie roommate and a demon girlfriend, Mark’s lucky if he can sneak in a few minutes of sleep.
During a recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, show creator Devin Clark and executive producer Daniel Powell talked about bringing this wacky and weird world to life, the challenge of keeping the issues relatable, developing the look of the animation, what they learned from Season 1, the themes they’re exploring in Season 2, how the talented and very funny voice actors influence the characters and story, their great guest voices, and trying not to have too much fun, at the expense of the show. They also talked about the recently developed downloadable video game, Apocalypsegeddon, that is an extension of the series. Check out what they had to say after the jump:
