Premiering tonight on FX is a new dramedy, Baskets, starring Zach Galifianakis as Chip Baskets, a would-be French clown who is forced to abandon his dreams and return to his hometown of Bakersfield, California. Along with his wife and a host of other oddball characters, Baskets must confront his past while working as a rodeo clown and competing with his siblings for his mother’s approval and affection.

TV Equals attended the red carpet at the Baskets premiere and talked with Galifianakis and his co-stars Sabina Sciubba (“Penelope”) and Julia Gruenberg (“Crystal Baskets”) about the obstacles Chip faces in returning to his former, disappointing life.

Baskets premieres tonight at 10pm EST on FX.
