From the time of the long ago past arrives "Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire," Comedy Central's epic new half-hour, live-action series that chronicles the adventures of Krod Mandoon (Sean Maguire) and his hopelessly futile band of warriors as they take on the evil Chancellor Dongalor (Matt Lucas).
Marking Comedy Central's first foray into fantasy-comedy, "Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire" is an outrageous, character-driven workplace comedy set in an ancient realm. Narrated by Chris Parnell ("30 Rock"), the series follows reluctant hero, Krod Mandoon (Maguire, "Meet the Spartans"), a thin-skinned and underconfident freedom fighter, who is the last great hope in the struggle against the evil ruler, Chancellor Dongalor (Lucas, "Little Britain USA"). To help fight the good fight, Krod has assembled a band of loyal, but remarkably ineffective freedom fighters. Together, they must overcome a myriad of evil obstacles in their quest to save the world, including name-calling, hired assassins and a bisexual Cyclops (or biclops).
Although not formally announced by either Comedy Central or Paramount Home Entertainment, Amazon.com has posted a pre-order listing
for a November 10th
release of Krod Mandoon And The Flaming Sword Of Fire
. Very little information is shown there so far: all we know is that this is a single disc running 140 minutes (which ought to be enough to hold all six episodes that were produced for the series). Cost is $19.99 SRP, but you can pre-order it at a discount. No cover art is shown so far, but stay tuned and we'll bring it to you when we can. Our thanks to reader Matt Stone for the heads-up about this item!
