Another Helping of "Cake"

FXX's Weekly Short-Form Showcase Returns Thursday, September 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT

Season Five Serves Up a Wealth of New and Exciting Animation-Focused Treats, Including Reza Farazmand's Poorly Drawn Lines and Branson Reese's Swan Boy

LOS ANGELES, August 25, 2021 - Cake, FXX's half-hour weekly showcase of short-form live-action and animated comedy programs of varied length, will return for animation-focused fifth season on Thursday, September 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FXX. Both the weekly showcase and individual programs will also be available to FX subscribers through FXNOW, and streaming the next day via FX on Hulu. Cake is produced by FX Productions.

Cake is a handcrafted assortment of bite-sized shorts carefully curated and served up as a tasty treat for the mind. Featuring a diverse array of narratives from storytellers both new and established, featured programs are equal parts thought-provoking, laugh-inducing, artistic, authentic and raw. (Not to mention, totally gif-able!).

Each of the fifth season's 10 episodes features Reza Farazmand's Poorly Drawn Lines, an animated program spotlighting the fantastical misadventures of Ernesto (Tony Revolori), Tanya (D'Arcy Carden) and Kevin (Ron Funches) - three twenty-something best friends navigating early adulthood in a world where the strange and surreal are an everyday thing. Based off the comic of the same name, Poorly Drawn Lines is produced by Floyd County Productions and Fish Ladder Productions.

Also prominently featured this season is Branson Reese's Swan Boy, an animated program based off the comic of the same name from executive producers Alex Plapinger and Augenblick Studios. Swan Boy focuses on an anthropomorphic 20-something swan of low station and (in his finest moments) medium intelligence, who gets into trouble ranging from the mundane to the fantastic to the surreal.

Season five also features animated Beings from creator Dan Britt and executive producer Alex Plapinger; live-action The Dream starring Gary Richardson (Saturday Night Live) and Ana Fabrega (Los Espookys), from creators Alan Resnick, Dina Kelberman and Robby Rackleff, plus executive producer Alex Plapinger; and live-action Words with Ike from executive producers Ikechukwu Ufomadu and Graham Mason, to name just a few programs.
