Louis C.K. Surprises Fans With ‘Horace and Pete’ Web Series Co-Starring Steve Buscemi

Louis C.K. pulled a Beyonce and dropped an episode of new web series “Horace and Pete” online with no prior announcement.

C.K. stars in “Horace and Pete” with Steve Buscemi. The comedian alerted his fans to the series’ existence with an email on Saturday, which announced that the first episode of the series was available for download on his website for $5. Dubbed “a brand new thing from Louis C.K.,” the announcement read, “Hi there. ‘Horace and Pete’ episode one is available for download. $5. Go here to watch it. We hope you like it. Regards, Louis.”

The episode takes place in an Irish bar and features appearances by Alan Alda, Aidy Bryant and Edie Falco.

Gothamist reports that the episode sports a theme song by Paul Simon and resembles a dramatic play, “with an emphasis on the depressing realities of life for barflies and bartending lifers.” Based on the jokes made about the Super Bowl and Donald Trump, it seems the episode was shot pretty recently.

C.K. addressed his indefinite hiatus from FX series “Louie” at the Television Critics Assn. winter press tour earlier this month when asked when he expected to bring the show back.

“I don’t know,” he said. “I just don’t know. I don’t know. I think about it sometimes and I just don’t know. It’s such an autobigraphical thing that I could do a version of ‘Louie’ when he’s 60, if anyone gives a sh-t… By the time I want to, I might say, ‘Hey guys,’ and they’ll be like, ‘Who is this?’”
