Coming in June, Sweet Tooth looks to be a charming if quirky post-apocalyptic series — the official trailer is out now
Yet another comic adaptation (this was a Jeff Lemire concept), this is executive produced by Susan Downey & Robert Downey Jr.If you don’t know the comic version, the trailer tells you:
…a post-apocalyptic fairytale about a hybrid deer-boy and a wandering loner who embark on an extraordinary adventure…
While you get to grips with what that might mean, the trailer itself promises an intriguing mix of dark and light, and this new series (coming June 4) might just have the recipe for success. We’ve found a more detailed synopsis:
Ten years ago “The Great Crumble” wreaked havoc on the world and led to the mysterious emergence of hybrids — babies born part human, part animal. Unsure if hybrids are the cause or result of the virus, many humans fear and hunt them. After a decade of living safely in his secluded forest home, a sheltered hybrid deer-boy named Gus (Christian Convery) unexpectedly befriends a wandering loner named Jepperd (Nonso Anozie).
Together they set out on an extraordinary adventure across what’s left of America in search of answers— about Gus’ origins, Jepperd’s past, and the true meaning of home. But their story is full of unexpected allies and enemies, and Gus quickly learns the lush, dangerous world outside the forest is more complex than he ever could have imagined.
