Louis CK & Zach Galifianakis' 'Baskets' Is Coming to FX So Get Ready to Cry-Laugh

The world continues to be transfixed by FXX's seemingly infinite marathon of every Simpsons episode ever, but over on the original FX network a whole new comedy thang is brewing: The network's said "hell yes" to a new comedy series called Baskets from comedians Louis CK and Zach Galifianakis.

Betting on CK and Galifianakis to deliver a hit comedy seems like a pretty safe one if you ask me. CK's Louie just keeps picking up Emmys not matter what he does, and Galifianakis has an Emmy, too, for his Between Two Ferns. This new series, Baskets, comes from the two of them and Portlandia co-creator Jonathan Krisel. Here's the description, courtesy of Deadline:

Sounds like a hit to me. Galifianakis as an earnest wannabe clown? How do we not already have that in our lives?
