There are plenty of new TV show options hurtling your way in the next twelve months, but few will boast the unique premise of “Baskets.” Produced by Louis C.K., it brings Zach Galifianakis to the small screen and lets him to go full weird, in a show that looks like it will be an acquired taste (i.e. if you’re not a fan of his comedy, you might stay away).
Co-starring Louie Anderson, Martha Kelly, Sabina Sciubba, and Ernest Adams, the show follows a man who flunks out of a prestigious clown school in Paris, and winds up working for a local rodeo show back home. He lives in a motel, and doesn’t seem like the most put together person on the block, but it seems the series is aiming to hit you in the feelings with both laughter and tears.
“Baskets” arrives on FX on January 21st. Watch below.
