FX has been on a roll with comedies in the past few years - namely, with hits like Louie and Wilfred - so it's understandable that we were all waiting with bated breath for their next winning pick-up. The new series Legit, from what Deadline is reporting, may be just that.
The show stars Australian comedian Jim Jefferies, and is about a comedian of the same name and his "misguided attempts to become legitimate in life ... He is encouraged in his quest by his best friend Steve (Dan Bakkedahl), and Steveâ€™s brother Billy (D.J. Qualls)." The series was co-created by Jefferies and former showrunner for The Riches, Peter O'Fallon. It's set to debut sometime in January 2013.
