There’s no word yet on whether President Obama will guest-star, but FX has ordered 10 episodes of a new comedy called Baskets, starring Zach Galifianakis, the network announced Wednesday.
Created by Galifianakis (Between Two Ferns), Louis C.K. (Louie), and Jonathan Krisel (Portlandia), Baskets follows Chip Baskets’ (Galifianakis) pursuit of his dream of becoming a respected clown. After a failing to enroll in a prestigious clowning school (is that an oxymoron?) in Paris, of all places, the only job that Chip can find is with a local rodeo in California.
Ummm, Louis C.K. AND Zach Galifianakis involved in the same project!?!?!? Baskets is already the funniest show on television.
Production is slated to begin next year for a 2016 premiere.
