Happy Endings alumna Eliza Coupe is set as the female lead opposite Josh Hutcherson in Future Man, Hulu’s half-hour comedy pilot from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The gig expands Coupe’s relationship with Hulu where she has recurred on Jason Reitman’s Casual. 

Written by Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir and executive produced by Matt Tolmach, Future Man is a high-concept comedy that centers on Josh Futterman (Hutcherson) a janitor by day/world-ranked gamer by night who is tasked with preventing the extinction of humans after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion.

Coupe will play futuristic soldier Tiger, a sexy, tough and intense character in the Cybergeddon video game, who, along with her cohort Wolf, recruits Josh to travel back in time to save the world from the hellish landscape she left behind. However, she’s hiding a secret that could unravel everything.

Rogen and Goldberg executive produce and direct. Sony Pictures TV is the studio.
