MUMBAI: Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution has lined up
comedies on offer at MIPTV. Louie and The League, which are new to the market, will be available to international buyers, while Modern Family and Glee will also be on offer.
Louie is a comedy filtered through the observational humor of Louis
C.K. Each episode puts a spotlight on Louis’ hectic life as a
successful stand-up comedian and newly single father raising his two
daughters. The single-camera comedy is a mix of Louis C.K.’s stand-up
comedy and scripted stories. Louis C.K. serves as executive producer,
writer and director, and Dave Becky and 3Arts are executive producers.
In the US, the series is scheduled to premiere in June on FX.
In January, Louis’ stand-up concert film, Louis C.K.: Hilarious,
premiered at The Sundance Film Festival as the first stand-up concert
film to be presented by the Festival.
Glee is the musical comedy series that follows an optimistic high
school teacher as he attempts to transform the school’s lackluster
glee club into a world-class vocal ensemble.
While Modern Family, is the series that takes an honest and funny look
at the complications that come with being a family today.
