Lucas, Maguire tapped for Comedy's 'Krod'
Empty"Little Britain" co-star Matt Lucas has joined Sean Maguire in Comedy Central's scripted series "Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Firea," the network's first foray into fantasy comedy.
Rounding out the ensemble cast are India de Beaufort, Steve Speirs, Kevin Hart, John Rhys-Davies, James Murray and Marques Ray.
"Krod" is described as "equal parts workplace comedy and sword-and-sorcery fun." The series follows reluctant hero Krod Mandoon (Maguire), who is the last great hope in the struggle against the evil Chancellor Dongalor (Lucas). To help him, Krod has assembled a band of ineffectual freedom fighters (de Beaufort, Speirs, Hart, Ray). Rhys-Davies plays a wizard who battles Krod.
"Krod," created by Peter Knight, is in production in Budapest. Lucas is repped by CAA and Troika Talent in the U.K De Beaufort is repped by SMS Agency, CAM in the U.K. and manager Tom Drumm. (partialdiff)
