With just one successful animated series on their schedule in the form of Archer, FX is looking to expand their cartoon horizons for mature audiences as the cable network announced it has just picked up Unsupervised (working title), an animated comedy series from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia executive producers/writers/stars Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton, who have their own production banner called RCG Productions. In addition, writers/producers Rob Rosell, Scott Marder and David Hornsby from that very comedy series will executive produce with animation from Archer executive producers Adam Reed and Matt Thompson.
The new show focuses on optimistic best friends Gary and Joel navigating the harsh landscape of teenage life and trying to do what’s right without any parental guidance whatsoever. And if the talent behind the series doesn’t have you excited already, then the voice cast should turn some heads as it includes Justin Long, Kristen Bell, Romany Malco, Kaitlin Olson, Alexa Vega with Fred Armisen voicing a character in the pilot episode and producers Rosell and Hornsby lending their pipes as well. If it measures up to the same amount of hilarity and quality that the aforementioned FX comedies deliver every season, then we should all be in for another great series.
