Archer is an American adult animated sitcom created by Adam Reed for the basic cable network FX. Debuting on September 17, 2009, it follows the exploits of a dysfunctional intelligence agency, led by Sterling Archer (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin) and seven of his colleagues—his mother Malory Archer (Jessica Walter), Lana Kane (Aisha Tyler), Cyril Figgis (Chris Parnell), Cheryl Tunt (Judy Greer), Pam Poovey (Amber Nash), Ray Gillette (Adam Reed) and Dr. Algernop Krieger (Lucky Yates). Archer premise evolves as the comedy assumes the standard setup of an anthology in later seasons, each with self-contained arcs, new settings, a disparate set of personae for each character, even distinct humor. Beginning with the eighth season in 2017, the show was broadcast on sibling network FXX. Beginning in 2020 with Season 11, new episodes became available on Hulu the day after linear broadcast as part of the FX on Hulu initiative in the United States.
