Animated Post-Apocalyptic Comedy ‘Cassius and Clay’ Coming to Screens

According to ComingSoon.net, Adam Reed (Archer) and Megan Ganz (Modern Family, Community) are bringing us Cassius and Clay, an animated post-Apocalyptic comedy. The series will air on FXX, alongside Archer (which is moving to the network for its seventh season).

The cast for the show is actually pretty impressive too:

  • 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.

Cassius and Clay is expected to premiere in 2016.
