FX Picks Up Zach Galifianakis’ Comedy Series ‘Baskets’


FX is expanding their catalog of amazing programming with the addition of Zach Galifianakis’ comedy series Baskets.

According to FX, Baskets follows the story of one man in Bakersfield, California who dares to follow his dream of becoming a professional clown. But after an unsuccessful enrollment at a prestigious clowning school in Paris, the only job he can find is with the local rodeo. Baskets follows Chip Baskets’ (Zach Galifianakis) pursuit of his dream, against all odds, to be a respected clown.

The series is touted as a half-hour, single camera comedy series and was co-created by Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel.

Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, the Presidents of Original Programing for FX Networks and FX Productions, made the announcement today. “Zach Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel have created an absolutely brilliant show,” said Schrier. “To say Zach’s portrayal of the lead character Chip Baskets is hilarious/unique/riveting/fascinating would be an understatement. We can’t wait for the world to meet him.”

FX has ordered 10 episodes of Baskets and production will begin next year with the series scheduled to launch in 2016.
