Billy Crystal to Star in FX Sitcom; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of March 24, 2014)

Billy Crystal Josh Gad

FX has ordered 13 episodes of the comedy series The Comedians, starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad. In The Comedians, Crystal plays a superstar veteran comedian who is reluctantly paired with Gad (Frozen, The Book of Mormon), an edgier up-and-coming star, in an unfiltered, behind-the-scenes look at a late night sketch comedy show where egos and generations collide. Rounding out the cast are series regulars Stephanie Weir, Matt Oberg and Megan Ferguson. The Comedians marks the Emmy Award winning Crystal's first regular starring role in a TV series since his performance as "Jodie Dallas" in the groundbreaking ABC comedy Soap, which ran from 1977-81.

Larry Charles (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld), Matt Nix (Burn Notice), and Ben Wexler (Community, Arrested Development) are Writers and Executive Producers of the project, along with Crystal. Charles directed the pilot. Josh Gad is serving as Producer. The half-hour, single-camera comedy is produced by Fox Television Studios. Production will begin this year and the series will air on FX in 2015. Stay with us for continued updates on this comedy and all the upcoming FX comedies, including the multi-camera sitcom starring Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence.
