NEW YORK, June 14, 2011 — Comedy Central’s Ugly Americans returns for a wet, hot summer of zombie-loving good times with affable human social worker Mark Lilly (voiced by Matt Oberg), along with his creature cohorts of demons, wizards and robots. The Comedy Central original, animated comedy returns with 10 half-hour episodes beginning on Thursday, June 30 at 10:30 p.m., following all-new episodes of the EmmyÂ® Award-winning series Futurama, as part of a weekly, one-hour “Thurs-Dimension” animation block. Special guest voice appearances for the second season include Christine Baranski, Rob Riggle, Todd Barry and Jenny Slate.
Take New York City, add every horrifying beast, science-fiction freak and fantasy faerie, shake thoroughly, and you’ve got Ugly Americans, an animated series that follows Mark Lilly, a social worker at the Department of Integration, as he helps new citizens both human and “other” adapt to hectic life in the Big Apple. There are easier tasks than soothing a vengeful mummy, being a slave in Satan’s dark army and trying to circumcise wizards, but Mark proves he’s up to the challenge, even if his co-workers are as incompetent as ever.
Mark’s case load during the second season is heavy as always and his Department of Integration colleagues are less than helpful, including Twayne (Michael-Leon Wooley), a terrorizing demonic bureaucrat; Mark’s succubus co-worker and casual fling Callie Maggotbone (Natasha Leggero), who has some strange ideas about where to take their relationship; Leonard Powers,(Randy Pearlstein) an aging drunken wizard and Mark’s office mate; and Lt. Grimes (Larry Murphy), a law-enforcement officer who despises non-humans. At least Mark still has his zombie roommate Randall Skeffington (Kurt Metzger), who doesn’t care what Mark does, as long as he covers his half of the rent.
