FOX Reveals ‘Krapopolis’ Guest Star Lineup

Check out the clip... with Ben Stiller as Prometheus – other Season 1 guest stars include Susan Sarandon, Joel McHale, and Dave Franco; Dan Harmon’s all-new adult animated comedy series’ 2-episode preview event coming September 24.

FOX has revealed a stellar lineup of guest stars – think, Ben Stiller; Susan Sarandon; Joel Mchale; Dave Franco; Yvette Nicole Brown; Will Forte; Jane Lynch; Daveed Diggs; and Steve Buscemi – plying their thespianage (is that even a word?) in Season 1 of its highly anticipated all-new adult animated comedy series, Krapopolis, from Emmy Award-winner, creator, and executive producer Dan Harmon (Rick and Morty, Community). The show makes its FOX Animation Domination block debut with a special two-episode preview event on Sunday, September 24, immediately following the FOX NFL doubleheader.

If the aforementioned talent isn’t enough, Stephanie Beatriz; David Cross; Keith David; Chris Hardwick; Tim Meadows; Bobby Moynihan; Jim Rash; Rob Riggle; Tim Robinson; Michael Urie; Alanna Ubach; and Amber Stevens West will also guest-star.

Krapopolis is set in mythical ancient Greece and tells the story of a dysfunctional family of humans, gods, and monsters that try their hand at running the world’s first cities – without trying to kill each other, that is. The series features the voices of Emmy Award winner Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Richard Ayoade (The IT Crowd), Matt Berry (What We Do in The Shadows), Pam Murphy (Mapleworth Murders) and Duncan Trussell (The Midnight Gospel).

In the series, Ayoade voices Tyrannis, the mortal son of a goddess and benevolent King of Krapopolis, who tries to make do in a city that lives up to its name. Waddingham plays Deliria, Tyrannis’ mother, goddess of self-destruction and questionable choices. Deliria is as petty as she is powerful, and only seems interested in defending civilization if it means she’ll get more worshipers out of it than her frenemies up on Mt. Olympus. Berry is Shlub, Tyrannis’ father, a mantitaur (half centaur [horse + human], half manticore [lion + human + scorpion]). He’s the self-described life of the orgy. A true pleasure seeker who thinks that everyone should just chill out and, if they need him for anything, he’ll be down at the bar. Murphy voices Stupendous, Tyrannis’ half-sister, daughter of Deliria and a cyclops. Trussell plays Hippocampus, Tyrannis’ half-brother, offspring of Shlub and a mermaid, and a hot mess, biologically speaking.

Watch: Tyrannis and Hippocampus Save Prometheus - Tyrannis and Hippocampus set out to rescue Prometheus (played by Ben Stiller) to get him to tell his mother she is “full of crap:”

The show is FOX’s first wholly owned animated series; it’s produced by FOX’s Bento Box Entertainment. Harmon is Creator and Executive Producer. Steve Levy is Executive Producer. Jordan Young is Executive Producer and Showrunner (Season 1). Alex Rubens is Executive Producer and Showrunner (Seasons 2 & 3). The series has already been renewed for a second and third season prior to its Season 1 debut.
