A new series on FX starting next year...

Plot: At ISIS, an international spy agency, global crises are merely opportunities for its highly trained employees to confuse, undermine, betray and royally screw each other. At the center of it all is suave master spy Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin), whose less-than-masculine code name is "Duchess." Archer works with his domineering mother Malory (Jessica Waler), who also is his boss. He also has to deal with his ex-girlfriend, Agent Lana Kane (Aisha Tyler) and her new boyfriend, ISIS comptroller Cyril Figgis (Chris Parnell), as well as Malory's lovesick secretary, Cheryl (Judy Greer).

Written by: Adam Reed (Frisky Dingo, Sealab: 2021, Space Ghost)

H. Jon Benjamin (lots of voice work including Home Movies, Family Guy, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force)
Jessica Walter (Lucille Bluth from Arrested Development)
Chris Parnell (SNL, 30 Rock)
Aisha Tyler (Google her. I'm sure you'll recognize her gorgeousness)
Judy Greer (Kitty Sanchez from Arrested Development)

Begins: Jan. 14th

The promos for this have been hilarious. I always chuckle to myself, no matter how many times I may have seen them.

Anyone else interested?

I've seen the pilot episode and couldn't stop laughing, hopefully the series will be as hilarious as Frisky Dingo.

How do you catch the pilot Cronos?

I'm with Smiert, the tv spots are hilarious. I can't wait!

Appeared on the internet a few months back, probably from a screener or something.

Yeah, I just downloaded it after Cronos mentioned it was out. You can find it via torrent pretty easily, just search: "Archer S01E01" (The actual title of the episode is "Mole Hunt").

I must say: this shit was absolutely hi-larious. The pace is so rapid fire, a second viewing does it even more justice. The cast is great (though H. John Benjamin really shines) and I also love the visual style, which is very early Bond/Get Smart-esque. Can't wait for the series to start. I'll need somethin' to replace the void left by It's Always Sunny, as well as somethin' to tithe me over until LOST begins in Feb...

"Just the tip!"
