UPDATE, June 9th: In a late schedule change, FOX UK is moving Baskets to a new night for it’s second season. The channel has announced that rather than continuing in the Thursday night slot, the show’s sophomore run will now kick off on Sunday June 18th at 10pm. No reason was given for the change.
PREVIOUS, May 5th: The second season of FX Networks’ comedy series Baskets will receive its UK premiere on FOX UK on Thursday June 22nd at 11pm, it has been announced.
Baskets follows one man in Bakersfield, California dares to follow his dream of becoming a professional clown. But after an unsuccessful enrollment at a prestigious clowning school in Paris, the only job he can find is with the local rodeo. The comedy series is produced by FX Productions and stars Zach Galifianakis, Louie Anderson and Martha Kelly. The series has been renewed for a third season.
In the show’s ten episode second season, the Baskets family is at its most fragile. Losing his wife and his rodeo job, Chip (Zach Galifianakis) jumps on a train to get the hell out of Bakersfield, but a gang of gutter punks, the police, and a sudden death drag him right back into the drama he tried to escape. Dale’s (Zach Galifianakis) marriage crumbles as his unrequited love affair with Martha (Martha Kelly) deepens, and Christine (Louie Anderson), who dedicated her life to her sons with little affection in return, takes her own happiness into consideration for once – and finds romance on the way.
