MUMBAI: Fox's channel, FX, has placed a 13-episode order for a new animated comedy series, 'Unsupervised' (working title).
The announcement was made by FX executive VP original series Nick Grad.
'Unsupervised' is scheduled to premiere in January and will be paired with the animated comedy 'Archer'.
'Unsupervised' is a comedy about optimistic best friends Gary and Joel navigating the harsh landscape of teenage life and trying to do what's right without any parental guidance whatsoever.
The series was created by and it is executive produced by Rob Rosell, Scott Marder and David Hornsby, all who currently serve as writer/producers on FX's hit comedy series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It features a voice cast including Justin Long, Kristen Bell, Romany Malco, Fred Armisen, Kaitlin Olson and Alexa Vega, along with Rosell and Hornsby.
Grad said, "Having worked with David, Rob and Scott for many years on Sunny, it gives us great pleasure to see them make their own stamp on FX. 'Unsupervised' is a great addition to our comedy roster and, like all of our comedies, it's smart and really funny."
With the order of 'Unsupervised', FX now has six comedy series on its lineup and the pick-up continues the network's rapid expansion in the comedy business.
