Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell is an American television series on Cartoon Network's late night programming block, Adult Swim. The series made its official debut on April 18, 2013 on Adult Swim. The show is a live-action workplace comedy about Gary, an associate demon, as he attempts to capture souls on earth in order to climb the corporate ladder of the underworld. Gary hopes to advance in Hell, but he may be too stupid, lazy and kind-hearted to realize his dreams of promotion. Meanwhile, Gary's intern Claude is more talented, more devious and will do whatever it takes to impress Satan.

On May 12th, 2016, the show was renewed for a third season[1] and will premiere October 23rd, 2016.

Characters[edit]

  • Gary (Henry Zebrowski) - a bumbling employee in Hell whose schemes to recruit humans to Hell often fail.
  • Claude Vernon (Craig Rowin) - Gary's younger and more-respected intern who often shows up Gary at work.
  • Satan (Matt Servitto) - the strict ruler of Hell, who shows Claude more respect than Gary.
  • Lucas (Dana Snyder) - Gary's former roommate who is still alive. He appears annoyed when Gary returns to earth to recruit him.
  • Eddie (Eddie Pepitone) - a tortured soul. He is often seen as the victim of various acts of sadism brought on by employees or Satan himself.
