Ugly Americans

Dealing with life and monsters in New York.

Ugly Americans is is a delightfully demented show from a couple former writers of The Simpsons. A social worker tries to help newly fantastical creatures (think monsters and the like) start life anew in New York City while dealing with his womanizing zombie roommate, alcoholic wizard boss and on-again-off-again succubus girlfriend. It’s a lesson in being able to create drama and empathy even in the most ridiculous narratives.
