Fox's 'Universal Basic Guys' animated comedy is about dudes who make $3k a month

Recommended Posts



Fox’s new animated series, Universal Basic Guys, throws light on the hot-button topic of Universal Basic Income (UBI) through the lens of sitcom humor. The show centers around two brothers, Mark and Hank Hoagie, whose lives are upended when their hot dog factory jobs are replaced by automation. Facing unemployment, they become participants in a pilot program offering a guaranteed $3,000 monthly income.


Universal Basic Guys promises a satirical take on the potential consequences of UBI. Will the brothers use their newfound freedom to pursue passions and self-improvement, or will they succumb to a life of leisure (and maybe a few too many hot dogs)?

While the series is bound to generate laughs, it also has the potential to spark conversations about the future of work and the role of government in supporting citizens. UBI remains a hotly debated policy, with proponents arguing it can alleviate poverty, stimulate local economies, and empower individuals to pursue entrepreneurship or education.


Universal Basic Guys may not provide definitive answers to these complex questions, but it's sure to offer an entertaining springboard for discussions. Here’s the kicker:  Fox showed such confidence in the show’s potential that it granted it an early season two renewal even before season one premieres on January 1, 2025.
