Archer’s Adam Reed and Modern Family’s Megan Ganz have joined forces to create a new animated pilot entitled Cassius & Clay – and FX just ordered a full season.
The series will focus on two women bandits in a post-apocalyptic America with a Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid kind of feel. Kaitlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Brickleberry) will star as the slick, heavy-drinking Ordwood Cassius alongside Lake Bell (Childrens Hospital) as gunslinger Shopcarter Clay. Susan Sarandon will play a callous booze/girl-pushing saloon/brothel owner named Connie Mack.
Co-stars will include JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm) as the town’s only doctor, Kevin Michael Richardson (The Cleveland Show) as a local blacksmith, Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) as the mayor, Stephen Root (King of the Hill) as a preacher, Katy Mixon (Mike & Molly) as two “sister whores,” and Robert Patrick (a.k.a. the fucking T-1000) as a tax collector.
Cassius & Clay will be developed by Floyd County Productions and Archer’s Matt Thompson.[Story via The Hollywood Reporter, Photo by Becca Green]
