FX orders comedy by Louis C.K., Zach Galifianakis


Louis C.K., who seems capable of doing just about anything these days, has just received a 10 episode order for a sitcom he is working on with Zach Galifiankis called Baskets.

Deadline reports that Galifianakis will star in the show as a man wishing to pursue his dream of becoming a professional clown by finding a job at a rodeo. FX picked up the series order and is looking for a 2016 launch. Baskets will be the fifth new comedy pilot picked up to series by FX and the 11th in FX’s comedy lineup.

The official showrunner Jonathan Krisel (Portlandia, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) directed the pilot and helped write the script along with C.K. and Galifianakis.

This news comes days after C.K. picked up his second Emmy for writing on his show Louie.
