archer-bobs-burgers-crossover.jpgFX's "Archer" and FOX's "Bob's Burgers" don't have a ton in common, aside from the voice of H. Jon Benjamin, who plays the title character in both shows.

That's enough, though, for an animated crossover episode set to air on the forthcoming season of "Archer."

Benjamin says "Archer" creator Adam Reed came up with the idea, which Benjamin describes as a "Bourne Identity"-ish story.

"It starts off with Archer as Bob, making hamburgers, but he doesn't know that he's Archer," Benjamin tells EW. "He's at the restaurant and these, like, I think Russian thugs come in, and Bob dispatches them expertly. And then he's like, What just happened? How did I do that? So he has to try to figure out why he's so good at killing people."

The episode will be done in "Archer's" animation style, but the "Bob's" characters will still be recognizable, Benjamin says.

"It is a little weird because you have to be a fan of both to understand it," Benjamin acknowledges. "But you don't have to know about 'Bob's Burgers' to enjoy it."

FX hasn't set a premiere date for "Archer" yet.
