NBC has ordered a new dramaedy series called Apocalypse starring Rob Lowe, Megan Mullally, Jenna Fischer and Mathew Baynton (The Wrong Mans). What is it about? The end of the world!

According to EW, “a comet is on an unavoidable collision course toward Earth and one extended family must navigate the societal chaos that ensues. Characters include ‘a foul-mouthed priest, an unhinged white supremacist, a mild-mannered bank manager, a germ-phobic cyber-terrorist, a five-star general and a child who (possibly) rose from the dead.'”

NBC is getting on the ‘end of the world’ bandwagon with shows like HBO’s The Leftovers, AMC’s The Walking Dead, ABC’s Resurrection, TNT’s Falling Skies, and Fox’s upcoming show The Last Man on Earth. Maybe NBC will give the apocalypse a funny spin on the matter like ‘end of the world’ filn This Is The End and The World’s End. The show is starring comedians, so maybe we can have a laugh about the end of the world.
