The man behind FX's snarky, boozy, potty-mouthed and funny animated spy show "Archer" is a nice guy from Asheville named Adam Reed.
Reed's the creator and an executive producer of the show, and as he tells it, his entry into animation was unexpected. (That's him on the right.) It all started after his 1992 graduation from UNC-CH.
"I graduated with no plan whatsoever," says Reed, who majored in English. He packed a bag and went to France, living and working odd jobs in Chamonix. Then the money ran out.
