FXx Orders Animated Post Apocalyptic Buddy Comedy “Cassius and Clay” Starring Kaitlin Olson, Lake Bell, and Susan Sarandon To Series
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
It’s being pitched as a female-led post-apocalyptic buddy comedy a la Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, which also makes us think of the sort of show that would have happened had Thelma and Louise survived.
FXx’s latest comedy will be the animated Cassius and Clay from Archer’s Adam Reed and Megan Ganz whose written for both Community and Modern Family with a great cast in Kaitlin Olson from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Lake Bell from Childrens Hospital, and Susan Sarandon. The three of them would be a cool bunch in a number of different scenario, but a post-apocalyptic setting should be especially fun to watch. Also, they have a guest cast that includes none other than Jeffrey Tambor and Stephen Root.
It’s set to debut sometime next year on FXx and we have yet to figure if there will be any sort of connection or reference to Muhammad Ali’s former name.
