American black comedy Baskets created by Louis C.K. and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) is heading to the UK.
Galifianakis stars in the show which follows wannabe professional clown Chip Baskets, as he fails to make his dreams come true.
Chip’s dreams of becoming a professional clown at a Parisian clown school are crushed after he fails he fails to graduate, forcing him to return home to Bakerfield, California and become the clown-in-residence at the local rodeo.
Nor can Chip find solace in the company of his wife, who, she tells him, only married him for a green card, and doesn’t have a chance at making it as a clown – or cloon, if you’re Parisian.
Galifanakis stars as Chip and his rival twin brother Dale Baskets, while Martha Kelly plays Martha Brooks, an insurance agent who is Chip’s sole friend and who puts up with his mean treatment of her.
Louie Anderson also stars as Christine Baskets, mother of Chip and Dale, and picked up an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy series in 2016.
The series was a hit when it launched in the US in 2016, and has recently been recommissioned for a third series.
Baskets launches on Fox UK on 13 April.
