FX has ordered 13 episodes of The Comedians, a half-hour sitcom starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad, the network announced Wednesday.
The Comedians, based on a Swedish series of the same name, will offer an unfiltered behind-the-scenes look at late-night sketch comedy. Crystal stars as a successful veteran comedian who is reluctantly paired with Gad, an edgier up-and-coming star. The show also marks Crystal's first starring TV role since his role as Jodie Dallas on Soap.
