FX may have landed its next critically acclaimed series, with help from its star Louis C.K.
The network has ordered a comedy pilot created by and starring Zach Galifianakis and co-written by the 46-year-old Mexican American comedian and star of FX’s Emmy-winning series Louie, which also earned a Peabody Award last April.
There’s still no concept yet for the project, the first to come out of Louis C.K. and his company Pig Newton’s overall pact which FX Productions.
Louis C.K. had previously signed a production deal with FX Productions to help get new projects off the ground.
Galifianakis will executive produce alongside Louis C.K.
This marks the 12th greenlighted comedy pilot for FX Productions as the company is beefing up its comedy production efforts to supply both FX and sibling FXX with content.
