It may be a while before “Louie” returns to FX with new episodes but that doesn’t mean Louis C.K. isn’t keeping busy. Besides appearing alongside Bryan Cranston in “Trumbo,” the comedian has teamed up with FX in producing brand new content for the network.
Fruits of that labor can now be revealed as the first series produced under that deal is about to see the light of day. Zach Galifianakis stars in the quirky new comedy called “Baskets” which follows Chip Baskets as he attempts to make it as a clown in his hometown of Bakersfield after flunking out of school in Paris.
For those who suffer from coulrophobia, maybe this new series will help in break you of that fear. Then again, maybe not?
To further promote the funny new series, FX has released a bunch of new clips which can be viewed below.
“Baskets” premieres Thursday, January 21 at 10 PM ET/PT on FX.
