FX Greenlights Animated Comedy Pilot with Lake Bell, Kaitlin Olson, Jeffrey Tambor
FX is making an animated action comedy pilot in the vein of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” with a star-studded voice cast, Variety has learned.

The “Cassius & Clay” animated pilot hails from Megan Ganz (“Modern Family” and “Community”) and “Archer” creator Adam Reed of Floyd County Productions. Both will serve as writers and exec producers on the FX Productions project.

Described as an animated action-buddy-comedy centered on two women living as bandits in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic America, the A-list voice cast includes “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” star Kaitlin Olson and Lake Bell (“Childrens Hospital”), as the title characters, Ordwood Cassius and Shopcarter Clay. Cassius (Olson) is a hard-drinking, quick-thinking, fast-talking bull-sh-tter who has more debts than sense, and Clay (Bell) is the fastest gun in the post-apocalyptic South who doesn’t go looking for trouble, she shares a station wagon with it.

Susan Sarandon is also a series regular with Jeffrey Tambor,

Unsupervised: FX Animated Series to Return

FX's animated series Unsupervised is set to return on Thursday, December 6 at 11:30pm. It'll follow back-to-back episodes of sitcom The League. The remaining episodes of Unsupervised are expected to air before the end of the year.

Back in September 2011, the cable channel ordered 13 episodes. The first 10 installments aired from January through March, paired with Archer. The last episode to air in March attracted just 510,000 viewers, compared to Archer's 1.33 million viewers.

Despite garnering poor ratings, FX opted to order a second season of Unsupervised in late March. There's no word on when they'll air or how many installments have been ordered.

Unsupervised revolves around two 15-year-old best friends -- Gary (Justin Long) and Joel (David Hornsby) -- who try to do the right thing without parental supervision. The voice cast also includes Alexa Vega, Fred Armisen,

Romany Malco Joins Michael Douglas And Robert De Niro In Last Vegas

While had had hits in both 2005's The 40 Year Old Virgin and 2012's Think Like A Man, Romany Malco has largely stuck to the small screen over the last few years. In addition to starring in the first few seasons of Weeds (I will never understand why they axed his character), he has also had extended runs on shows like The Good Wife, No Ordinary Family and Unsupervised. But now he's getting back to the big screen once again. Deadline reports Malco has signed on to join the amazing ensemble cast of Jon Turteltaub's Last Vegas. The comedy follows four aging friends who decide to get back together for one last hurrah when the last among them is finally getting married. Michael Douglas will star as the man giving up bachelorhood, while Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Klein make up his support system. Dan Fogelman, who

The Box Office Story: ‘Think Like a Man’ is #1 – Audiences Getting Full on ‘The Hunger Games’

It took five weeks, but box offices are beginning to get full on Katniss Everdeen as The Hunger Games fell to third place this weekend. Taking the top spot was Think Like a Man with a big bank of $33 million in estimated domestic gross. Director Tim Story showed that he could overcome disappointing fans of the Fantastic Four franchise and get back to making good films that African-American audiences (though let’s remember, not exclusively) can be excited about like his debut film, Barbershop. It’s good to know that black audiences don’t always have to wait for Tyler Perry to make or produce a film even though it seemed like that was the case for many years. Believe me that’s a good thing because Perry doesn’t always make good films. Think Like a Man opened bigger than any Tyler Perry film with the exception of Madea Goes to Jail

The Daily Show’s Larry Wilmore to co-star in pilot from It’s Always Sunny creators

For most of his career, actor-writer-comedian Larry Wilmore has been known more for every other part of his multi-hyphenate than the “acting.” But he’s been getting a lot more camera time since his role as The Daily Show’s “Senior Black Correspondent” made him a familiar face, and now he’s set to co-star in a comedy pilot that Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia), Rob Rosell (an It’s Always Sunny producer/writer and co-creator of the new animated series Unsupervised), and Dan Dunn are developing for Fox.

Thursday Comedies: 30 Rock 3.08, Parks and Rec 4.15, Archer 3.08

30 Rock, Season 6, Episode 8, “The Tuxedo Begins”

Written by Josh Siegal & Dylan Morgan

Directed by John Riggi

Airs Thursdays at 8pm Et on NBC

We begin tonight with a refreshingly great episode of 30 Rock, possibly the best they’ve done in years. Turning to current events for the second time this season, the show finds significantly more success dealing with Alec Baldwin’s mayoral aspirations than it did Tracy Jordan’s homophobia. It opens with an amusing gag featuring Liz on the subway and a brief musical bit with a prostitute joyous upon arrival to New York City. That neither of these are mere throwaway gags and both factor into the episode that follows goes to show just how tight the writing on this episode is.

30 Rock more or less functions as a finely tuned joke machine and a good episode can usually be defined as one in which work than fall flat.

Thursday Comedies: 30 Rock 6.06 & 6.07, Archer 3.07, Unsupervised 3.04

30 Rock, Season 6, Episodes 6 & 7, “Hey, Baby, What’s Wrong”

Written by Kay Cannon

Directed by Michael Engler

Airs Thursdays at 8pm Et on NBC

Valentine’s Day episodes seem to be a necessary evil if your show happens to run on one of the networks. There must be some data out there that suggests they help ratings during February sweeps but in comparison to Halloween episodes, which are usually a fair amount of fun, they often feel uninspired. Which doesn’t help things in a season of 30 Rock that uninspired describes fairly well. It’s the combination of jokes that are mildly-amusing at best and plots that feel short on innovation that has made this season feel like such a chore. If either area was working it would be significantly easier to overlook the other; unfortunately that’s not the case tonight.

The least eventful plotline tonight features Frank and Tracy
