Airdate: Ugly Americans

Zombie alert!

SBS will air Comedy Central’s animated series Ugly Americans which centres on Mark Lilly, social worker at the Department of Integration, who helps supernatural creatures adapt to life in New York City while managing relationships between his half-demon, half-human girlfriend, Callie, and his zombie roommate, Randall.

And keep your eyes peeled for a koala….

The fourteen part series has a classic comic book look about it and was developed by former Simpsons writer David M. Stern, based on an original idea by Devin Clark.

Take New York City, add every horrifying beast, science-fiction freak, and fantasy fairy, shake thoroughly, and you’ve got Ugly Americans. This animated horror-comedy series follows one Mark Lilly, social worker at the Department of Integration, as he helps new citizens both human and ‘other’ adapt to hectic life in the Big Apple.

There are easier tasks than weaning vampires off of blood, socialising land-whales, and housebreaking werewolves, but Mark is up to the challenge. Between his stressful job, a zombie roommate, and a demon ex-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?

It premieres Monday, 14 February at 10.00pm on SBS ONE.
