FX and FXX are adding a pair of female-centric comedies to their stables.
FX has ordered a 10-episode first season of Better Things, starring Pamela Adlon (Louie, Californication). Co-created Adlon and Louis C.K., the comedy centers around Sam (Adlon), a working actress struggling to raise her three daughters by herself. According to a press release from FX, “Her life is funny to watch, but you wouldn’t want to live it (except sometimes).”
FXX, meanwhile, has ordered the animated comedy Cassius and Clay to series; it stars Kaitlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as Cassius and Lake Bell (Children’s Hospital) as Clay, two women forced to become bandits in a post-apocalyptic America. Additional voices include Susan Sarandon and Jeffrey Tambor.
Additionally, FXX will be the new home of Archer, which returns for Season 7 in 2016.
