ARCHER

Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that follows Sterling Archer, Lana Kane, and their crew of acid-tongued misfits onboard the M/V Seamus salvage ship. An important question arises as they explore deep space and try to outsmart giant aliens, intergalactic pirates, and vicious bounty hunters: how do they survive each other? Welcome to the space-tastic world of Archer: 1999.

The series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as the hard-drinking Captain, “Sterling Archer;” Aisha Tyler as Archer’s Co-Captain and short-tempered ex-wife, “Lana Kane;” Jessica Walter as Archer’s mother and ball of energy, “Malory Archer;” Judy Greer as the eagle-eye fighter pilot, “Cheryl/Carol Tunt;” Chris Parnell as the attention-seeking First Mate, “Cyril Figgis;” Amber Nash as the crew’s rock monster muscle, “Pam Poovey;” Adam Reed as the out-of-place-in-space courtesan, “Ray Gillette;” and Lucky Yates as the synthetic human with questionable morals, “Algernop Krieger.”

BASKETS

Big changes are underway for the Baskets family. After 49 years, Chip (Zach Galifianakis) decides it’s finally time to move out of his mom’s place. But even with the help of Martha (Martha Kelly) and a life coach, he learns that leaving the nest is hard, to say the least. Christine (Louie Anderson) and Ken (Alex Morris) move into a new place they can call their own, but carpet emergencies and missing kitchen magnets make the transition rockier than expected. And Dale (Zach Galifianakis) has found kindred spirits with his fellow inhabitants at the RV park.

The cast of Baskets features Zach Galifianakis as twins “Chip Baskets” and “Dale Baskets”, Louie Anderson as “Christine Baskets”, and Martha Kelly as “Martha.”. The season is executive produced by Zach Galifianakis, Jonathan Krisel, Marc Gurvitz and Andrea Pett-Joseph, and directed by Jonathan Krisel. The series is produced by FX Productions.

The third season finale saw the Baskets family counting down to New Year’s Eve, with Chip receiving a phone call from his ex, Penelope (guest star Sabina Sciubba), and Ken about to pop the question to Christine. Critics praised the season as “a worthy investment in hilarity and healing” (Hanh Nguyen, Indiewire), and “the best and certainly most affecting thing [Zach Galifianakis has] done” (David Marchese, New York Magazine).       

For his work as “Christine Baskets”, Anderson won an Emmy Award for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” and has been nominated two additional times. Galifianakis received an Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series” for his transformation into twin brothers “Chip Baskets” and “Dale Baskets”.

SNOWFALL

Season three of Snowfall picks up in the summer of 1984. Crack cocaine is spreading like wildfire through South Central Los Angeles, continuing its path of destruction and changing the culture forever. Police are waking up to this growing epidemic, and Sergeant Andre Wright (Marcus Henderson) has set his sights on budding Kingpin and next door neighbor Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and his people. While local law enforcement fights to stem the tide, Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson) and the CIA are working hard to make sure the flow of cocaine into LA doesn’t stop.

To continue funding the war against communism in Central America, Teddy will need to find new routes into the United States using Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta) and what's left of the Villanueva family. As the stakes and losses continue to mount, these players truly begin to understand the destructive forces they have set in motion and must reexamine their own motivations and the cost of continuing forward from here.

Created by John Singleton, Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, Snowfall is executive produced by Singleton, Amadio, Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Michael London and Trevor Engelson. Andron serves as showrunner.
