A while back we learned of the exciting prospect that comedy legend Billy Crystal would return to TV with 'Book of Mormon' and 'Frozen' star Josh Gad in an FX remake of Swedish comedy series 'The Comedians.' Now, the project has officially been greenlit to series, pairing the elder comedy legend with his younger go-getting counterpart for a 2015 premiere.
We were excited enough to hear that comedy legend and occasional Oscars host Billy Crystal would return to TV for the forthcoming FX single camera pilot 'The Comedians,' but he certainly won't be doing it alone. 'jOBS' star and former '1600 Penn' lead Josh Gad has signed on for the leading role opposite Billy Crystal, but what will 'The Comedians' have to say about the state of the game?
Having returned to the public sphere with his most recent Academy Award hostings and the upcoming 'Monsters University,' legendary comedian Billy Crystal will next head to TV full time. The 'When Harry Met Sally' funnyman will headline a new FX single-camera comedy pilot 'The Comedians,' but what about the creative team has the TV industry already buzzing?
