Guys! FX Network has committed to a new animated series from Archer creator Adam Reed and Megan Ganz (Modern Family and Community). Both will serve as writers and exec producers on the FX Productions project.

The show is being described as "an animated action-buddy-comedy centered on two women living as bandits in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic America." The A-list voice cast includes Kaitlin Olson (It's Always Sunny) and Lake Bell (Childrens Hospital), as the title characters, Ordwood Cassius and Shopcarter Clay. Cassius (Olson) is "a hard-drinking, quick-thinking, fast-talking bull-sh-tter who has more debts than sense, and Clay (Bell) is the fastest gun in the post-apocalyptic South who doesn’t go looking for trouble, she shares a station wagon with it." (Via Variety)


Here's the full character and cast line-up:


Megan Ganz (“Modern Family” and “Community”) and “Archer” creator Adam Reed of Floyd County Productions. Both will serve as writers and exec producers on the FX Productions project.


Cassius Cordwood (Kaitlin Olson): A hard-drinking, quick-thinking, fast-talking bull-shitter who has more debts than sense.

Shopcarter Clay (Lake Bell): The fastest gun in the post-apocalyptic South — she doesn’t go looking for trouble, she shares a station wagon with it.

Connie Mack (Susan Sarandon): The ruthless and cutthroat owner of Wilke’s only saloon and brothel. Mack runs the booze, the girls, the whole goddamn town, really.

Doc Benz (JB Smoove): The town’s only doctor, locked in a dysfunctional, co-dependent relationship with Smiffy (who carts the Doc’s ornery, legless ass around).

Smiffy (Kevin Michael Richardson): The enormous blacksmith, a gentle giant who can fix anything so long as Doc says it’s okay.

Mayor Waitstill Weeks (Jeffrey Tambor): The utterly powerless and disregarded mayor of Wilke, who’s barely in charge of his own newspaper, which only he reads.

Jack Ruby (Katy Mixon): Head-whore of The Snug, Connie Mack’s number two and the Mayor’s number one.

Reever Grint (Robert Patrick): The terrifying tax-collector from Richway, the crookedest of all the crooked sheriffs.

Odum (Stephen Root): The ever-scheming deputy who’s always under Grint’s bootheel, which is really the best place for such a greasy lickspittle.


More as it comes, folks!
