Atlanta writers/producers and Floyd County Productions founders Adam Reed and Matt Thompson rose in the ranks at Cartoon Network with Adult Swim shows such as "Sealab 2021." They proved ready for prime time with the animated spy spoof and FX smash hit "Archer." The raunchy cartoon's popularity surged in its second season and has been renewed for a third. While "Archer's" voice actors, including "Saturday Night Live" funnyman Chris Parnell and comedian Aisha Tyler, live out of town, the regulars include local actors Amber Nash and Lucky Yates. The Atlanta-based production proves that an independent animation studio like Floyd County Productions can deliver comic programming to take on Hollywood. fxnetworks.com/shows/originals/archer.
