Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Seth Rogen, FUTURE MAN is a half-hour comedy series that follows Josh Futturman, a janitor by day/world-ranked gamer by night, who is tasked with preventing the extinction of humanity after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion. Josh feels stuck in his dead-end job as a janitor so all he really does is play Biotic Wars, an unbeatable videogame the rest of the world has given up on. But when Josh beats the game, mysterious visitors from the future appear: the world is in danger, and Josh is the only one who can save it. In 1969, Josh, Tiger and Wolf launch a mission to infiltrate a fraternity party and prevent Dr. Kronish from contracting herpes -- but the destruction they've left in their wake quickly catches up with them. And when Tiger and Wolf decide it's time for Dr. Kronish to die, Josh reluctantly agrees to help. But when he realizes he can't go through with it, he finds himself caught in Tiger and Wolf's sights instead.
