FX has found its next stand-up turned TV star in Jim Jeffries, an Australian comic known for his audacious, raunchy material. He'll co-create and star in Legit, about a comedian trying to get his life in order. The show should premiere in January and will combine the comedian-ness of Louie with the Australian-ness of Wilfred. If it ain't broke, etc.
