'Archer' Makes Comedy Central Premiere March 2

Archer, FX's animated spy comedy, will premiere on Comedy Central with two back-to-back episodes on March 2.

Comedy Central announced last spring it had acquired syndication rights from Twentieth Television to the haf-hour series, its second pick-up of an FX series; Comedy Central also airs the Fox cable network's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The Archer deal covers all existing seasons of the series, including commitments for future seasons.

Archer will run on Comedy Central in one-hour, two-episode blocks on Mondays at 10 p.m. (ET) and Fridays at 11 p.m. (ET), the network said.

Created by Adam Reed, who is an executive producer with Matt Thompson, the series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as master spy Sterling Archer, Jessica Walter as his mother and boss, Malory Archer; Aisha Tyler as his ex-girlfriend and current co-worker, Agent Lana Kane; George Coe as his aging-but-loyal butler, Woodhouse; Chris Parnell as agency comptroller Cyril Figgis; Judy Greer as Malory’s secretary, Cheryl; and Amber Nash as Pam, the agency’s director of human resources.
