Louis C.K. has the kind of deal at FX that any star, director, showrunner, and writer would kill for: complete freedom. While his hit series “Louie” has been renewed for a sixth season, the show — which he has been allowed to make whenever and however he chooses — is currently on an extended hiatus. However, he’s not leaving FX hanging and has a new show in the pipeline.
Deadline reports that Louis C.K. and Albert Brooks are teaming for an untitled animated comedy that they will co-create, co-write, and executive produce, in addition to providing the lead voices. That’s definitely very exciting stuff, but frankly, this is all we can tell you about the show for now. No other details have been shared, but a pilot has been ordered. I presume if it goes to series, it means that the wait for the sixth season of “Louie” will be even longer. But hey, these two taking their comedy brains to animation could yield some wonderful results.
Thoughts? Let us know below. Until we know more, you can see Louis C.K. and Albert Brooks together in the upcoming “The Secret Life Of Pets.”
