FX Network launches new animated series ARCHER on January 14th at 10:00 PM


FX is launching a new original comedy series, ARCHER, on Thursday, January 14th with two episodes airing at 10:00 PM and 10:30 PM ET/PT that night.  


Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy set at the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS), a spy agency where espionage and global crises are merely opportunities for its highly trained employees to confuse, undermine, betray and royally screw each other. The series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as suave master spy “Sterling Archer,” whose less-than-masculine code name is “Duchess;” Jessica Walter as his domineering mother and boss, “Malory Archer;” Aisha Tyler as his ex-girlfriend and current co-worker, “Agent Lana Kane;” George Coe as his aging-but-loyal butler, “Woodhouse;” Chris Parnell as ISIS comptroller and Lana’s new love interest, “Cyril Figgis;” Judy Greer as Malory’s lovesick secretary, “Cheryl;” and Amber Nash as “Pam,” the director of human resources for ISIS.
