Baskets is a brand new comedy series scheduled to premiere on FX in 2016. The series was co-created by Louis C.K., Zach Galifianakis and writer Jonathan Krisel (Portlandia, Kroll Show, Saturday Night Live). Galifianakis will star in the lead role. The show is set in Bakersfield, California where Chip Baskets (Galifianakis) sets out on following his dream of becoming a professional clown. After failing to get a degree at a prestigious clowning school in Paris, he is stuck with a job at a local rodeo. FX picked up the pilot and ordered a 10-episode first season with production starting this year.
