Two of comedy’s most cynical commentators, Louis C.K. and Albert Brooks, are teaming up to create a new animated pilot. The duo will co-write and executive produce the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and they will voice two of the as-yet-untitled show’s lead roles. The show, a pilot order that will be prepared for FX, will run 30 minutes.
The pilot will mark the first time Brooks has served as creator of a television series. He’s previously lent his voice to The Simpsons and portrayed a character on Weeds. Prior to those shows, the last television show he worked on was Saturday Night Live in its first season.
