Louis C.K. talked about the outlook for his acclaimed FX comedy series “Louie” during a podcast hosted by The Hollywood Reporter. The show has been on hiatus since its season five finale last May.
C.K. led with the bad news: “I think the guy that I played on the show — the just-divorced kinda underwater dad/struggling New York comic — I don’t think I have stories for that guy anymore,” he said on the podcast, released Saturday.
Then he softened the blow, saying: “But the show is autobiographical, so what [FX president and general manager] John Landgraf and I have always thought is that it may come back with a different set of stories from a different angle a little further down the road. And I don’t know where that’s from yet, so it just depends on if it writes. I think, for me, if I’m on TV again doing a single-camera show, it’s ‘Louie.'”
