Now that Breaking Bad is done, Louis C.K. essentially has the best show on TV right now—in my opinion, of course—with Louie on FX. And now, it looks as though he is going to continue his strong working relationship with the station.
The comedian/writer/director/actor/editor/everything else has just signed a new multi-year deal to exclusively develop pilots and potential series for FX or FXX with his production company Pig Newton, according to Variety via Splitsider.
This deal will allow him to have the option to serve as a writer and/or director on any project he develops for FX alongside his executive producing duties. He’ll still be allowed to go outside the station to release future stand-up specials.
Considering how good Louie is, and how good Louis C.K. is as a comedian, this is pretty much nothing but good news for everyone. I really hope this creates some great TV.
Louie is set to return on FX for a 13-episode fourth season in May. C.K. will next be seen in American Hustle on December 18.
