Next year Louis C.K. will continue his run over at FX but this time behind the scenes as he drops off new comedy, ‘Baskets’. The series will star Zach Galifianakis as a man looking to become a professional clown. The network has released an early first look.
FX Networks will be launching a brand new comedy series titled Baskets, starring Zach Galifianakis in a story penned by comedic geniuses and show co-creators Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel (director of Portlandia). Set in Bakersfield, California, Baskets follows Chip Baskets (Galifianakis) as he pursues his dream of becoming a professional clown after failing to obtain his degree at clown college. The single camera-shot comedy is slated for a 10-episode first season release sometime 2016. The three comedians’ involvement alone could prove to be a successful formula for a hilarious show.
