FX has a show involving clowns in the works and it’s not American Horror Story: Freakshow. This one is a comedy, but with comedian Louis C.K. as its co-creator it may be just as dark. Zach Galifianakis will star as a guy named Chip Baskets. Baskets quits his corporate job to attend clown school in Paris. When he flunks out he opts to join a rodeo. The 10 episode series is expected to premiere early 2016.

The comedy tells the story of Galifianakis’ character, a man who’s chasing his dream of becoming a professional clown, but must join the local rodeo. Which this tag team of comedians, this should be even more entertaining than Cirque du Soleil.
