Mediaweek TV: Comedy Gets Serious With ‘Krod’

It was only a matter of time before cable TV’s Comedy Central tried to augment its male-skewing audience by combining laughs with another genre that skews largely male: fantasy.
Hence: Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire. Premiering Thursday, April 9, the live-action series takes a comic look at an ancient band of do-gooders.
Mediaweek correspondent Alan Frutkin talks with executive producers Peter Knight and Brad Johnson; and actors Sean Maguire, Matt Lucas, India de Beaufort and Kevin Hart about the show’s origins, creating a strong ensemble and who is Krod’s weakest link.
