Louis C.K. and Albert Brooks to co-write and voice animated pilot for FX
So this is pretty damn exciting: Deadline is reporting that Louis C.K. has joined forces with Albert Brooks to co-create, co-write and executive produce an animated comedy for FX. The duo will also provide the lead voices in the untitled project, which has received a pilot order from the network, but unfortunately there aren't any other details on their small screen collaboration.
Although this will be Brooks' first project as a television creator, he directed six shorts for the first season of Saturday Night Live, and has also voiced several characters on The Simpsons. C.K.'s FX series Louie is currently on an extended hiatus and doesn't have a return date, however he does have three new comedy series: FX's Better Things starring Pamela Adlon and Baskets starring Zach Galifianakis, and Amazon's One Mississippi starring Tig Notaro.
C.K and Brooks both voice characters in Illumination Entertainment's THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS (due out July 8, 2016), and Brooks will also be back as Marlin the clownfish in Pixar's FINDING DORY, which has been scheduled open on June 17, 2016.
