NEW YORK, March 15 /PRNewswire/ — From the time of the long ago past arrives “Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire,” COMEDY CENTRAL‘s epic live-action series chronicling the adventures of Krod Mandoon (Sean Maguire) and his hopelessly futile band of warriors as they take on the evil Chancellor Dongalor (Matt Lucas). Released via COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment and produced by Media Rights Capital, “Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire” special BBC edition DVD is extended and uncensored and arrives in stores nationwide on Tuesday, March 23 and will also be available at http://shop.comedycentral.com.
The “Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire” special BBC edition DVD contains extended and uncensored versions of each episode and includes the following bonus material: cast interviews, behind-the scenes with Kevin Hart (Zezelryck), deleted and extended scenes and outtakes.
“Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire” is an outrageous, character-driven workplace comedy set in an ancient realm. Narrated by Michael Gambon, 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:
Aneka (India de Beaufort, “Run, Fatboy, Run”), the beautiful Pagan warrioress whose weapon of choice is sex; Zezelryck (Kevin Hart, “Fool’s Gold”), the young warlock whose greatest magical gift is spinning B.S.; Loquasto (Steve Speirs, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”), Krod’s oafish half human/half swine servant; and Bruce (Marques Ray, “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out”), who’s fierce and proud. 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).
Krod Mandoon is the son of a blacksmith and a stay-at-home mom who is revealed to be “The Golden One,” the last great hope in the rebellion against the cruel Meconian Empire and the wicked Chancellor Dongalor. Dongalor has not only imprisoned Krod’s mentor, the great General Arcadius, but is also in possession of the ultimate weapon of mass destruction, the Eye of Gulga Grymna, which he plans to wield over his subjects in his quest to rule the world, if only he can figure out how to unleash its awesome power. When Krod and his gang set out to rescue Arcadius, it becomes quite evident that his newly-recruited band of semi-skilled warriors have clearly padded their resumes and that for Krod to succeed in thwarting Dongalor’s evil plans, he must grow thicker skin, overcome his germaphobia and work through his own sexual hang-ups with his Pagan girlfriend, Aneka.
“Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire” is a co-production of COMEDY CENTRAL, Media Rights Capital and BBC Television and is produced by Hat Trick Productions and Watson Pond Productions.
