FX is looking for Bigfoot.
The cable network is developing an animated comedy based on the faux autobiography books by Graham Roumieu, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
From FX Productions, Bigfoot is an adaption of Roumieu's hilarious works In Me Own Words, Me Write Book and I Not Dead and follows Bigfoot, who is described as a bipolar hopeless romantic that lacks the ability to properly express himself, living in both the human and animal world of Pine Falls but not quite fitting in to either one.
American Dad writer/supervising producer Matt McKenna will write and executive produce the project. Point Grey Pictures' Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are also on board to serve as EPs. The Jimmy Miller Co. and Floyd County Productions will also executive produce alongside Roumieu.
For FX, should the project move forward, it would join a roster that includes Archer and Unsupervised -- which also hail from Floyd County Productions.
The news comes as FX is preparing to launch comedy-themed offshoot network FXX, which will house half-hours including It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League and Legit, among others, when it bows in September.
It's too early to say if Bigfoot will air on either FX or FXX.
