Last month it was announced that Louis C.K. and his production company Pig Newton had signed a deal to create and produce new shows for the FX Network and now the first project has been revealed, with Deadline reporting that the Louie star will co-write a new comedy pilot created by and starring Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover).
Details on the pilot are virtually non-existent at present, save for the fact that Galifianakis and C.K. will executive product alongside Dave Becky, Andrea Pett-Joseph and Marc Gurvitz.
The as-yet-untitled project is one of twelve comedy pilots in development at FX, with another being How And Why from Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), which has just cast Michael Cera (Arrested Development) and John Hawkes (Deadwood). How And Why is described as the “story of a man who can explain how and why a nuclear reactor works, but is clueless about life.”
