Sexy, inappropriate, sumptuous, decadent, and extremely funny. Archer, the FX Networks' new terrific adult animated series. Archer is the creation of Adam Reed, popular voice artist, writer, producer, director from The Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.
The title character is a spy in the employ of ISIS, International Secret Intelligence Service. Understandably Archer has issues with his code name, "duchess". The fact that his boss is also his mother only adds to his problems.
i see Sterling Archer as a post-modern hybrid of .007 and Maxwell Smart. Alternately adept and inept as a spy, and playa, resulting in chaotic and hilarious adventures.
A great cast voices the characters: Jessica Walter as Malory Archer, CEO of ISIS and Sterling Archer's mom. Aisha Tyler as fellow ISIS spy and Archer's ex. George Coe as Woodhouse, Archer's long-suffering butler. Judy Greer as Cheryl/Carol, who's mad crushing on Sterling, and is Malory Archer's assistant. Chris Parnell as ISIS Comptroller Cyril Figgis. And H.Jon Benjamin as Sterling Archer.
Archer premiers Thursday January 14th on the FX Network at 10:00pm. Please check your local listings.
