FX, the network behind hit shows like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Rescue Me, and Sons of Anarchy, has picked up a brand new animated comedy series called Unsupervised.
The series comes from It’s Always Sunny creators (and stars) Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, and Glenn Howerton‘s RCG Productions banner. It’s part of a recent threeâ€“year, $50 million deal between the company and FX. The show is created and executive produced by Rob Rosell, Scott Marder, and David Hornsby, who have also worked on It’s Always Sunny.
Unsupervised follows Gary and Joel, two teenagers who have no parental guidance at all (assumedly along the same lines as Beavis and Buttâ€“Head) who are working their way through all of the problems teenagers face and trying to do the right things (very much unlike Beavis and Buttâ€“Head).
The show has an impressive voice cast already lined up that includes Rosell, Hornsby, Justin Long, Kristen Bell, Fred Armisen, Romany Malco, Kaitlin Olson, and Alexa Vega.
The plan is for Unsupervised to premiere in January, where it will be paired with FX’s hit animated comedy series, Archer.
