Under the two-year agreement, Sky and FX Networks will co-fund and co-develop half-hour scripted comedy projects. If any of them are picked up to series, the shows would air on Sky1 HD or Sky Atlantic HD in the UK and Ireland and FX Networks channels in the US. “This partnership will open doors for us to discover new comedy talent and develop their stories in this unique foreign exchange program,” said FX president of original programming Eric Schrier. Home-grown Sky comedies that have previously been broadcast on U.S. networks include An Idiot Abroad, A Young Doctor’s Notebook, Spy, Moone Boy and Doll & Em. Titles set to launch this year include Mr Sloane created by Bob Weide (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and starring Nick Frost which debuts this spring, Charlie Brooker’s A Touch Of Cloth will return for a third chapter this summer and Matthew Perry stars in Jon Ronson’s The Dog Thrower.
