Baskets Trailer: Zach Galifianakis Is the Saddest Clown in the Rodeo


Hear that sound? It's the tiniest, squeakiest French violin in the world. Quelle tristesse! Baskets stars Zach as Chip Baskets, a man who goes all the way to Paris to attend a snooty clown school, only to end up working at a local rodeo show. The show is co-created by Galifianakis, Louis C.K., and Jonathan Krisel, and also stars Louie Anderson, Martha Kelly, Sabina Sciubba, and Ernest Adams. From the looks of the trailer, Baskets is aiming to hit that sad-com sweet spot. The ten-episode first season premieres January 21.
