FX has handed out a pilot order to animated action-buddy comedy “Cassius & Clay”.
“Modern Family” producer Megan Ganz and “Archer” creator Adam Reed are teaming to executive produce the comedy pilot alongside Matt Thompson. The story follows two women living as bandits in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic America.
Ordwood Cassius (Kaitlin Olson) is a hard-drinking, quick-thinking, fast-talking bullsh—er who has more debts than sense. Shopcarter Clay (Lake Bell) is the fastest gun in the post-apocalyptic South who doesn’t go looking for trouble but shares a station wagon with it.
Also featured are Connie Mack (Susan Sarandon) the ruthless and cutthroat owner of Wilke’s only saloon and brothel and effectively runs the whole town and Doc Benz (JB Smoove) who is the town doctor in a dysfunctional relationship with a gentle giant of a blacksmith (Kevin Michael Richardson).
There’s also the powerless town mayor (Jeffrey Tambor), the good-natured Preacher (Stephen Root), a pair of sister whores (Katy Mixon), and a terrifying tax collector (Robert Patrick).
