Take the Big Apple, add every horrifying beast, science-fiction freak and fantasy faerie, shake thoroughly and you’ve got “Ugly Americans,”
a new animated comedy series premiering on COMEDY CENTRAL on March 17 at 10:30 p.m.
The series 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 New York City. There are easier tasks than weaning vampires off blood, socializing land-whales and housebreaking werewolves,
but Mark is up to the challenge. Between his stressful job, a zombie roommate and a demon girlfriend, Mark’s lucky if he can sneak in a few minutes of sleep.
But who can sleep when there’s a drop-dead gorgeous mermaid sitting at the bar?
In addition to Mark Lilly, the “Ugly Americans” cast features Randall Skeffington, Mark’s zombie roommate, Callie Maggotbone, Mark’s demon boss and office fling, Leonard Powers, an aging drunken wizard, Twayne, a terrorizing demonic bureaucrat and Lt. Grimes, a law-enforcement officer who despises non-humans.
The debut episode introduces lead character and “Department of Integration” (D.O.I.) agent Mark Lilly dealing with aggressive sexual advances from his demon boss Callie, while trying to do his work finding jobs for the city’s newest citizens. Lilly is also developing a reluctant friendship with his zombie roommate Randall, who he found on Craig’s List, as well as battling rival Grimes and his thug squad, who are apprehending “illegals” to fill a quota. Future episodes feature Mark counseling a young woman who wants to become a vampire and Callie going baby-crazy after Mark starts fostering a demon orphan.
