Louis C.K., Albert Brooks Developing New Animated Series with FX

Louis C.K. and Albert Brooks, who recently teamed up to voice characters in the upcoming animated feature The Secret Life of Pets, will team up again and develop an animated series for FX.

According to the report in THR, the animated show is unnamed and will remain a secret for some time. Apparently, the two brilliant comedians hit it off when doing their voice work for The Secret Life of Pets, which is no surprise.

C.K., who also co-wrote and produced the pilot for the upcoming FX comedy Baskets starring Zach Galifianakis (which looks positively bizarre), has yet to confirm whether or not he will come back for a sixth season of his offbeat, always fascinating “comedy” series Louie. At the end of the last season, C.K. stated he would take a hiatus from writing and producing that show, which he basically owns and just allows FX to air. Brooks, on the other hand, will return to television for the first time since 2008 when he popped up on the briefly memorable Showtime comedy Weeds.


Louis C.K. and Albert Brooks can be heard in The Secret Lives of Pets this summer. Here’s the hilarious trailer:
