FX Picks Up Animated Spy Comedy Featuring Adult Swim, Arrested Development Talent

In a somewhat unlikely move, FX has ordered six episodes of a new animated series, Archer, a comedy about a spy agency and its employees' attempts to undermine each other.

The series, set to debut in the fall, features ensemble voice work that will include Jessica Walter (Arrested Development) and the comedian Aisha Tyler. It was created by Adam Reed, an Adult Swim veteran. 

Nick Grad, a creative exec at FX, told THR that the new series “clearly fits the FX brand, and we believe it will find support from the fans of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”
