Louie Anderson was nominated for the 2018 Emmy Award in the Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series category for his role as Mrs. Baskets in Baskets (2016), but lost to Henry Winkler from Barry (2018).
The voice and mannerisms that Zach Galifianakis uses for Dale Baskets is the same he's used for his own fictional twin brother, Seth Galifianakis. "Seth" has been a staple of Galifianakis' stand-up for years.
On November 10th 2017, Louis C.K. was removed as executive producer, in light of recent sexual misconduct accusations leveled against him.
Zach Galifianakis originally wanted to cast Brenda Blethyn as Mrs. Baskets, but she wasn't available.
