FX has ordered a “Star Trek” spoof pilot from the makers of “Reno 911″ called Alabama. The network made the announcement during their TCA Summer Press Tour panel:
The pilot is a sci-fi show titled “Alabama” and is set a thousand years in the future. The show follows the crew of the space ship USS Alabama as they maintain interplanetary peace while going to hostile planets, meeting alien life-forms and trying “to have sex with each other in their tiny, metal bunk beds.”
“Alabama” is created by and stars “Reno 911″ veterans Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant and, just like their former Comedy Central series, will be part scripted and part improvised. Garant and Lennon are executive producers along with Peter Principato and Paul Young.
