When it comes to FX's hit comedy series Louie, creator and star Louis C.K. likes to take his time in getting each episode just right, which means prolonged wait times for each new season. The show has been on hiatus for a while, and isn't coming back any time soon. But in the interim, the comedian has surprised everyone by debuting a new web series called Horace and Pete.
The dramatic comedy appeared online this Saturday morning, and was certainly unexpected, as no mention of the show was ever made prior to its debut. Louis C.K. somehow managed to keep the show a secret. No easy feat since it also stars legendary sitcom actor Alan Alda and cult icon Steve Buscemi. The show is described as 'blackly' comedic and is being compared to the legendary sitcom Cheers.Read More
After finding a lot of success with his hit FX TV series Louie, Louis C.K. is heading back to the big screen, writing, directing and starring in the indie comedy I'm a Cop. The comedian hasn't directed a feature since the 2001 comedy Pootie Tang, which he was actually removed from by Paramount during the post-production process. He made his feature directorial debut with the 1998 movie Tomorrow Night, which the comedian released for purchase on his official website last year.
I'm a Cop centers on a middle-aged man who serves as a voluntary police officer, although he has spent his life living in the shadows of his mother, a legendary cop. Upon her death, her continued influence over him forces the man to pursue an actual career as a police officer, even though that is never something he wanted to do. No other cast members have been confirmed for the comedy at this time.Read More
