FX Orders an Animated Archer

Cable network FX has ordered six episodes of half-hour animated comedy ARCHER, per VARIETY.

The show, still in the working title stage, is from Adam Reed and is about the employees of an international spy agency. ARCHER is set to launch in the fall and is a likely companion to FX's cult fave comedy IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA.

Chris Parnell, Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer and Jessica Walter are part of the voice cast, as is Jon Benjamin of FAMILY GUY.

Benjamin is set to play Sterling Archer, a suave spy who goes by the code name "Duchess." Walter will play his mother, Tyler his ex-girlfriend, Agent Lana Kane. Greer will voice his secretary and Parnell is the spy agency's comptroller.

Reed and Floyd County Productions created the show from FX Productions.
