FX has released a couple of new promos for the off-kilter comedy series "Baskets," starring Zach Galifianakis as a crabby clown named Chip Baskets.

Picked up for ten episodes, "Baskets" was created by Galifianakis, fellow comedian Louis C.K. and "Portlandia" co-creator Jonathan Krisel, who also directs.

The single-camera comedy follows the sad life of a Bakersfield man (Galifianakis) whose dreams of becoming a world-famous clown are somewhat downgraded when the only employment he can find is at a local rodeo.

"Baskets" will premiere on Thursday, January 21st on the FX network.

Chip Baskets (Zach Galifianakis) wants to follow his dream of being a French clown -- however, reality keeps interfering. Saddled with financial difficulties and facing an impenetrable language barrier, he moves back home to Bakersfield with high hopes. There he is forced to confront his past while working as a rodeo clown and competing with his siblings for his mother's approval and affection.
