PREVIEW: FX's Thursday Night Animated Serials ARCHER & UNSUPERVISED

ARCHER returns on Thursday, January 19 at 10 p.m. ET on FX with its third season premiere, "The Man From Jupiter."

ARCHER is an animated, half-hour comedy serial that revolves around the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS) and the lives of its employees. Although their work of espionage, reconnaissance missions, wiretapping and undercover surveillance is daunting and dangerous, every covert operation and global crisis is actually just another excuse for the ISIS staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gain.

The series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as the highly skilled and incredibly vain master spy, `Sterling Archer’; Aisha Tyler as Archer’s fellow agent and ex-girlfriend, `Lana Kane’; Jessica Walter as Archer’s domineering mother and the director of ISIS, `Malory Archer’; Chris Parnell as the easily intimidated comptroller-turned-ISIS-agent, `Cyril Figgis’; Judy Greer as Malory’s loquacious secretary, `Cheryl Tunt’; Amber Nash as the discordant director of human resources for ISIS, `Pam Poovey’; Adam Reed as the gay voice of reason at ISIS, `Ray Gillette’; Lucky Yates as ISIS’s possibly mad scientist, `Krieger’; and George Coe as Archer’s elderly and always exploited butler, `Woodhouse.’

The premiere of UNSUPERVISED follows at 10:30 p.m. ET.

UNSUPERVISED is an animated, half-hour comedy about two eternally optimistic best friends “Gary” and “Joel,” who are navigating the harsh landscape of adolescence and trying to do what’s right despite having no parental guidance whatsoever. Gary’s father took off years ago and left him with his absentee stepmom, while Joel’s elderly parents remain unseen and uninvolved. And the adults that are actually present in Gary and Joel’s lives are anything but role models. At first glance, Gary and Joel’s world may be bleak but their worldview is bright as they guide themselves through life with each other to depend on.

UNSUPERVISED features the voices of Justin Long as “Gary,” David Hornsby as “Joel,” Kristen Bell as “Megan,” Rob Rosell as “Russ” and Romany Malco as “Darius.” Recurring voices include Kaitlin Olson as “Carol” and “Danielle,” Fred Armisen as “Martin,” Alexa Vega as “Christina,” and Sally Kellerman as “Principal Stark.” Guest voices include Dave Foley as “Darren,” Maggie Wheeler as “Pam” and Glenn Howerton in a variety of supporting roles.
