FX Orders Zach Galifianakis and Louis C.K.'s 'Baskets' to Series

zachgalifianakisEarlier this year it was reported that Zach Galifianakis had teamed up with Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel to co-write and star in a new FX pilot, and today Variety reports that the project has now been given a series order. Titled Baskets, the series will follow Galifianakis as a man named Chip Baskets "who leaves his job in the corporate world to pursue his dreams of becoming a respected clown."

Baskets is part of C.K.'s multi-year development deal with FX to create and produce new shows. While this is awesome news, don't get too excited yet — production on the 10-episode debut season will begin sometime next year, and the season isn't slated to premiere on FX until sometime in 2016.
