Exclusive: Back in June, as part of a deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution to pick up exclusive UK rights to the fourth season of Arrested Development, Netflix UK & Ireland snapped up the exclusive UK rights to all three seasons (32 episodes) of FX’s comedy series The League. I have just learned that all three seasons of The League will be available for streaming on Netflix UK & Ireland from September 15th.
Created by Jeff Schaffer and Jackie Marcus Schaffer, The League revolves around six friends competing in a fantasy football league. When these friends compete on the virtual gridiron, it’s a no-holds-barred, win-at-all-costs free-for-all full of deception, trickery and one-upmanship. Pete, a slacker who has won the league the past four seasons, is determined to triumph once again even at the risk of his marriage. Arrogant yet paranoid, Ruxin, would rather brush up on key fantasy stats than dote on his newborn, much to his wife’s chagrin. League commissioner Kevin secretly has his wife – the ruthless, confident and vaginally talented Jenny – running his team. Kevin’s younger brother, Taco, is a part-time musician who writes inappropriate songs and a full-time stoner. Once a loser in high school, Andre is now a successful plastic surgeon and a just as unsuccessful fantasy league player. Though marched grudgingly into adulthood, the motley crew finds refuge from life’s tedium with immature behavior and the thrill of chasing victory. The comedy series is produced by FX Productions and stars Mark Duplass, Stephen Rannazzisi, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Jon Lajoie and Katie Aselton.
