Cable outlet FX has some of the best dramas on basic cable.
Now the outlet is looking to develop a few comedies. Bolstered the success of this summer’s “Louie,” the cable outlet is developing several other new comedy shows.
One is the new series set in outer space from the producers of “Reno 911.”
Set a thousand years in the future, “Alabama” follows the crew of the space ship USS Alabama as they continue a seven-year mission to maintain interplanetary peace.
“The show will follow the heart-pounding action as our crew visits hostile planets, meets alien life-forms, and tries to have sex with each other in their tiny, metal bunk beds,” FX said.
Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant are developing the pilot, which like “Reno 911” the new show will be partially scripted and partially improved.
Garant and Lennon are executive producers along with Peter Principato and Paul Young.
