Billy Crystal returning to television

FX announced Wednesday that it has ordered 13 episodes of The Comedians, a single-camera comedy series that takes us behind the scenes of a late-night sketch show. Crystal will star as a famous comedian who is, much to his dismay, paired up with Josh Gad (1600 Penn, Frozen, The Book of Mormon).

The role marks Crystal’s return to television, as it will be the comedian’s first regular appearance since starring as Jodie Dallas in the ABC comedy Soap from 1977 to 1981.
