FX has been on a role recently with their comedies and now FX has picked up a new comedy from Zach Galifianakis and executive producer Louie C.K.. I love the series Louie, Wilfred, and most recently You’re the Worst. Given that they aren’t the typical comedies and allows the creators free rain of their product and not held down by the constraints of their network.
The comedy tells the talk of Chip Basket (Zach Galifianakis), a man who attempts to follow his dream of becoming a professional clown, but he must join to local rodeo after failing to get into a prestigious school in Paris.
“Zach Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel have created an absolutely brilliant show,” said Eric Schrier, one of the presidents of original programming at FX. “To say Zach’s portrayal of the lead character Chip Baskets is hilarious/unique/riveting/fascinating would be an understatement. We can’t wait for the world to meet him.”
FX plans to release a 10-episode first season that will begin production sometime next year with a series premiere expected in 2016.
