DESCRIPTION: (from FX's press release, January 2015) FX has set the premiere date of April 9th for the series premiere of the new comedy series The Comedians starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad and the fifth season of the Emmy(R) Award winning comedy series Louie. The Comedians will air at 10:00 PM ET/PT, followed by Louie at 10:30 PM ET/PT. The debut season of The Comedians will feature 13 episodes of the new series starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad. In The Comedians, Billy Crystal plays a comedy legend who is reluctantly paired with Josh Gad, an edgier up-and-coming star, in an unfiltered, behind-the-scenes look at a fictional late night sketch comedy show where egos and generations collide. Stephnie Weir stars as "Kristen Laybourne," the anxiety-ridden producer behind The Billy & Josh Show who frequently finds herself caught in the middle of Billy and Josh's arguments, Matt Oberg stars as "Mitch Reed," the show's head writer, and Megan Ferguson stars "Esme McCauley," a no-nonsense production assistant.
