HBO Max Reveals Premiere Date for New Animated Comedy 'Fired on Mars' Starring Luke Wilson

HBO Max has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original animated comedy series Fired on Mars starring Luke Wilson.

All 8 episodes of the first season will be available on Thursday, April 20.

Jeff Cooper (Wilson) has it all: a fulfilling career as the graphic designer for space start-up, a relationship with his soon-to-be Red Planet-bound girlfriend, Hannah, and... well, maybe that's it. But when his bosses unceremoniously eliminate his role, Jeff finds himself jobless and unable to return to Earth. Adrift in the sprawling office colony, Jeff is forced to reinvent himself as he attempts to find meaning in a dangerous, alien, yet all-too-familiar corporate landscape. An existential and irreverent animated comedy series, Fired on Mars explores the precarious relationship between work and self... light years away from Earth.

In addition to Wilson, the voice cast includes Leslie David Baker, Cory Loykasek, Stephen Root and Cedric Yarbrough.

Guest stars include Pamela Adlon, Thomas Haden Church, Tim Heidecker, Frankie Quinones, Emily Watson and Sean Wing.

Nate Sherman and Nick Vokey created the series. They executive produce with Carson Mell and Brian A. Miller. Wilson serves as a co-executive producer.
