  • First Look: Billy Crystal, Josh Gad in The Comedians on FX (Videos)

    FX has five reasons to get you excited for their new comedy series The Comedians starring Billy Crystal and Book of Mormon's Josh Gad. They're not reasons you can express in words but rather visual stimulants. FX Networks released several teaser trailers for the new series which marks Crystal and Gad's returns to television. Due to premiere in 2015, The Comedians is based on a similar Swedish series about an aging comedy veteran who is teamed up with a younger, edgier comic whose star is on the rise to co-star in a late-night sketch comedy show. The teasers are just as appropriately meta as the show's premise.
