Louis C.K. has gone from underground comic to arguably the face of comedy right now. Hitting a good trifecta of television, movies, and stand up, the Louie star's career has really taken off, and now its been revealed that FX has reached a deal with Ck and his production company, Pig Newton, to create and produce new pilots and potential series for the network.
"Working with Louis C.K. has been one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences of my career," said FX President John Landgraf. "So many incredibly talented artists want to work with Louis and follow down the independent and idiosyncratic creative trail he has blazed. I can’t wait to see who he brings through our door, not to mention any new projects that he wants to create for us." »
