FX is returning to the animated game with Cassius & Clay, a pilot that follows two women living as bandits in a futuristic, postapocalyptic America. Described as being in the vein of Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid, the project from writer-EPs Megan Ganz and Adam Reed stars Kaitlin Olson as Ordwood Cassius, a hard-drinking, quick-thinking, fast-talking bullshitter who has more debts than sense, and Lake Bell as Shopcarter Clay, the fastest gun in the postapocalyptic South; she doesn’t go looking for trouble, she shares a station wagon with it. The cast also includes Susan Sarandon, Jeffrey Tambor, JB Smoove, Robert Patrick, , Stephen Root, Kevin Michael Richardson and Katy Mixon.
The project comes from FX Productions and Floyd County Productions, which has teamed with FX on toon series Archer, Chozen and Unsupervised. Reed worked on those three shows, and Ganz’s credits include Modern Family and Community.
