FX is bringing back two of their original comedies.
The network has picked up Married and You’re The Worst for second seasons. Both FX Productions produced shows have received 13 episode orders and as part of the renewal, You’re The Worst will segue to sister network FXX, while Married is staying put on FX.
“We love these shows and the creative visions of Andrew Gurland of Married and Stephen Falk of You’re the Worst,” said Nick Grad, President of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. “Both series have terrific ensemble casts and outstanding lead performances – Nat Faxon and Judy Greer in Married, and Chris Geere and Aya Cash in You’re the Worst. These shows are honest, 360-degree looks at relationships and we’re excited to see how they evolve.”
Across their first seven episodes, Married averaged 1.96 million in Total Viewers and 1.35 million in Adults 18-49; while You’re the Worst averaged 1.65 million in Total Viewers and 1.09 million in Adults 18-49. Both series rank in the Top 10 in Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34 for new comedy series in 2014 on basic cable.
Created by Andrew Gurland, Married follows Russ and Lina Bowman, who can barely remember what life 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 series stars Nat Faxon, Judy Greer , Brett Gelman and Jenny Slate.
You’re The Worst tells the story of Gretchen and Jimmy, fear, heartbreak, romance, sex, food, Los Angeles, friendship, and the fact that sometimes the worst people make the best partners. The comedy series was created by Stephen Falk and stars Chris Geere (The Spa), Aya Cash (The Wolf of Wall Street), Desmin Borges (The Good Wife) and Kether Donohue (The Carrie Diaries).
