FXX to Air 'Archer's Greatest Loves' Mini-Marathon

In anticipation of Archer returning for its seventh season next year, Sterling Archer is reflecting on some of his greatest loves from the past with a special mini-marathon airing Saturday, September 26 from 10 p.m. - 1 a.m. ET/PT on FXX.

Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that revolves around an international spy agency and the lives of its employees. Although their work of espionage, reconnaissance missions, wiretapping and undercover surveillance is daunting and dangerous, every covert operation and global crisis is actually just another excuse for the staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gain.

The Emmy and Annie Award nominated animated comedy series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as the highly skilled and incredibly vain master spy "Sterling Archer;" Aisha Tyler as Archer's fellow agent and ex-girlfriend, "Lana Kane;" Jessica Walter as Archer's domineering mother and spy agency director, "Malory Archer;" Chris Parnell as the easily intimidated comptroller-turned secret agent "Cyril Figgis;" Judy Greer as Malory's loquacious, dingbat secretary, "Cheryl;" Amber Nash as the discordant director of human resources, "Pam Poovey;" Adam Reed as the gay voice of reason, "Ray Gillette;" and Lucky Yates as the spy agency's possibly mad scientist, "Krieger."

Archer was created by Adam Reed and is executive produced by Reed, Matt Thompson and Casey Willis at Floyd County Productions. The series is produced by FX Productions.

The Archer's Greatest Loves mini-marathon will feature the following episodes:

10 p.m. Episode 1 Mole Hunt Archer goes to great lengths to cover up discrepancies in his expense account as he attempts to access the agency's mainframe computer. Cyril and Lana's Friday night dinner date is interrupted by work.

10:30 p.m. Episode 18 Stage Two After Malory's brief scare with breast cancer, another agent decides to be tested for the disease, with a tragic result. The other agent is Archer, and the tragic result is that yes, he has breast cancer. Because a career spent disarming nuclear warheads and having sex in x-ray machines will tend to do that.

11:00 p.m. Episode 24 Heart of Archness: Part I Archer, in hiding since the murder of his fiancée, is finally tracked down in the South Pacific by handsome adventurer Rip Riley. To get Archer safely back, Riley will have to survive the elements, a plane crash, a shark attack, starvation, drowning, exposure and possibly pirates. Oh, and Archer.

11:30 p.m. Episode 34 Skin Game Archer is faced with a dilemma when his murdered fiancée, Katya, miraculously reappears. In Krieger's lab.

12:00 a.m. Episode 38 Coyote Lovely Archer heads to the Mexican border to capture a notorious coyote, which is Spanish for coyote.

12:30 a.m. Episode 59 Archer Vice: Palace Intrique: Part I Archer and the rest of the gang are the guests of Gustavo Calderon (Fred Armisen) and his wife Juliana (Lauren Cohan). Calderon is a big fan of Cherlene but Juliana is a bigger fan of Archer.
