The world's greatest comedian Billy Crystal is returning to television! FX has ordered The Comedians, starring the man who once met Sally, to series for a 13-episode first season. Crystal hasn't been a regular on television since the late-'70s sitcom Soap.
The Comedians will star Crystal as an aging comedian who stars on a late-night sketch show with an edgy new underling played by Josh Gad (1600 Penn, The Book of Mormon). I'd say there's a one-million-percent chance that they'll butt heads and scream at each other. Stephanie Weir, Matt Oberg, and Megan Ferguson round out the cast.
The new series also marks the return of Larry Charles to television. The Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld writer will write and produce the series along with Burn Notice's Matt Nix and Community's Ben Wexler.
