Pamela Adlon Better Things

FX Orders Pamela Adlon Comedy, FXX Picks Up Animated Cassius and Clay

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).”

FX Series OrdersFXX, 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.

    Are they trying to kill off Archer?! With exception of Always Sunny, FXX is where shows go to die.

    • Will says:

      The League lasted 3 seasons on FXX and is only really ending because the cast probably wants to move on, with Kroll coming off Kroll Show, Duplass getting his own HBO show, and Paul Scheer dealing with the high profile he’s gained from the Arscheerio Paul Show.

      Seems like it.

    • Sheila says:

      I hate the move to FXX. I love the show, but I do not have that channel and I won’t upgrade to get it. So I will just buy Archer when it is released.

    Cassius and Clay sounds cool

    They shouldn’t have cancelled Chozen.

  4. Was hoping to have a Pamela Alldone TV universe for a while when I read about Louie’s much needed, and hopefully long, hiatus. I like my comics to be likeable, or at least funny. She is neither.

  5. Meant to say “Pamela Alldone FREE TV universe”. Also realize now that my comment was neither likeable nor funny.
