‘Baskets’ renewed for second season

Los Angeles, Feb 25 (IANS) Comedy Series “Baskets”, starring Zach Galifianakis, has been renewed for second season.

The second season of “Baskets”, co-created by Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel, will debut in early 2017. It was announced on Tuesday by Eric Schrier and Nick Grad — presidents of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, read a statement.

“‘Baskets’ is bold, brilliant and incredibly funny and we could not be happier with the reception it has received in its breakout first season,” Schrier said.

“‘Baskets’ brings together three of the most innovative comedic minds working today – Zach, Louis and Jonathan – and we thank them, the rest of the creative team and the entire cast for everything they’ve done for the series.”

In “Baskets”, Chip Baskets (Galifianakis) wants to follow his dream of being a French clown. However, reality keeps interfering. Saddled with financial difficulties and facing an impenetrable language barrier, he moves back home to Bakersfield with high hopes. There, he is forced to confront his past while working as a rodeo clown and competing with his siblings for his mother’s (Louie Anderson) approval and affection.

The series also stars Martha Kelly as Chip’s insurance claims adjuster.

“Baskets” airs on Star World Premiere HD every Sunday.
