Futurist Ray Kurzweil has theorised that the technological singularity — the moment when artificial intelligence surpasses all human intelligence and brings about the end of humanity as we know it — will happen in the next three decades. In a new series for FX, Seth Rogan is ready to joke about it in the meantime.
Speaking to the Nerdist, Rogen said that he and producing/writing partner Evan Goldberg (Sausage Party, Preacher) were hard at work on the script and were planning to film the pilot next year. Rogen was reluctant to give too many details this early in its development — like, if he’ll be appearing on-camera at all — but he said, “It’s about artificial intelligence. It’s a half-hour comedy about the singularity basically,” before adding that the singularity theory is “super scary and we’re trying to make a comedy about it.”
