FX is moving forward on two new comedies, giving both series 10 episode orders with an eye on premiering both new shows in July. Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions announced the news on the two half-hour comedies: Married and You’re the Worst.
Grad said, “Married and You’re the Worst represent the continuing expansion of our comedy brand. They are smart, funny and adult. Married is a frank and honest portrayal of a marriage – both good and bad. You’re the Worst examines relationships – or lack thereof – of millennials and the uncertainty and anxiety that comes with those relationships. There is tremendous talent behind these shows and we couldn’t happier about the quality of these pilots.”
Married was created by Andrew Gurland and stars Nat Faxon, Judy Greer, Jenny Slate, and Brett Gelman.
Stephen Falk created You’re the Worst which stars Aya Cash, Chris Geere, Kether Donohue, and Desmin Borges.
Details on Married:
Married is a half hour comedy about being miserably in love. Russ (Faxon) and Lina Bowman (Greer) can barely remember what was like before kids, debt, and suburbia rained on their romance — but every once in a while, in between the arguments about their declining sex life and who’s driving carpool, they are reminded what drew them together in the first place — they’re best friends. The show also features Russ and Lina’s friend AJ (Brett Gelman) who is recently divorced and pretending he’s over his wife, and their other friend Jess (Slate) who is married to a much older man who can’t keep up with her.
Details on You’re the Worst:
You’re the Worst is a comedic love story about what happens when two toxic, self-destructive people (Cash and Geere) fall in love despite themselves and attempt the impossible—a relationship.
