Collider is the exclusive livestreaming partner for NYCC 2017 with ReedPOP, and we’re presenting the full Future Man NYCC panel live on October 6th from 1:30pm to 2:30pm in the video above.
The action-comedy series is a Hulu original and comes from executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Future Man stars Josh Hutcherson as a janitor and avid gamer who is recruited by mysterious visitors from the future to help prevent the extinction of humanity by killing the man who will invent a herpes cure. It’s basically a mashup of The Last Starfighter and Back to the Future, but told through the lens of some very funny people with an original twist.
