Sky and FX Networks have announced plans to team up and develop new comedy aimed at audiences in the US and UK.
The two-year deal will see the firms co-fund and co-develop new, post-watershed, half-hour scripted comedy.
The firms said that the co-development deal will “involve the very best on- and off-screen talent from both Britain and the US” with any commissioned shows due to air on Sky1 or Sky Atlantic in the UK and Ireland and on FX Networks Channels in the US.
“We’re hugely excited about working with FX Networks to develop distinctive brand new comedy and further strengthen our commitment to original home-grown programming,” said Sky’s head of comedy, Lucy Lumsden.
“Partnering with the world’s most renowned broadcasters lets us bring Sky customers something truly special, and we look forward to working with the most talented comedy writers and performers in both Britain and the US.”
