It’s official — Billy Crystal is returning to television, and he’s bringing funnyman Josh Gad with him.

FX announced Wednesday that it has ordered 13 episodes of The Comedians, a single-camera comedy series that takes us behind the scenes of a late-night sketch show. Crystal will star as a famous comedian who is, much to his dismay, paired up with Gad (1600 Penn, Frozen, The Book of Mormon). Stephanie Weir, Matt Oberg, and Megan Ferguson will also star.

The role marks Crystal’s return to television, as it will be the comedian’s first regular appearance since starring as Jodie Dallas in the ABC comedy Soap from 1977 to 1981.

The Comedians, based on a Swedish series, will be produced by Fox Television Studios and written and executive produced by Larry Charles (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld), Matt Nix (Burn Notice), and Ben Wexler (Community, Arrested Development). It also includes both actors in behind-the-scenes roles — Gad will serve as producer, with Crystal serving as an executive producer. READ FULL STORY
