Archer (R) is an American adult animated sitcom created by Adam Reed for the basic cable network FX. It follows the exploits of a dysfunctional group of secret agents—Sterling Archer and seven of his colleagues—Malory Archer, Lana Kane, Cheryl Tunt, Pam Poovey, Ray Gillette, Cyril Figgis, and Dr. Algernop Krieger. The premise of Archer has evolved in subsequent seasons with the introduction of new character arcs, settings, and serialized narratives. Beginning with the eighth season in 2017 the series moved to the FXX network.
The show was conceived by Reed shortly after the cancellation of his Adult Swim comedy Frisky Dingo. It draws inspiration from a variety of sources, including the James Bond franchise. The show’s hallmarks include rapid-fire dialogue, meta-comedy, and cultural references. The show is produced using limited animation and takes its visual style from mid-century comic art. The cast members record their lines individually, and the show regularly employs guest actors for supporting characters.
