FX ORDERS PILOT PRODUCTION OF ALABAMA

Comedy Pilot Co-Created By and Starring Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon

LOS ANGELES, August 3, 2010 - FX has ordered pilot production of Alabama, a half-hour comedy co-created by and starring Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon (creators and stars of Reno 911!), today announced John Landgraf, President and General Manager, FX Networks.

Alabama, written by Garant and Lennon, is a comedy set a thousand years in the future, aboard the United Nations peacekeeping spaceship: THE USS ALABAMA. The series begins six years into their seven year mission to maintain peace and enforce treaties between planets in their jurisdiction: Sector 187-G. The show will follow the heart- pounding action as our crew visits hostile planets, meets alien life-forms, and tries to have sex with each other in their tiny, metal bunk beds.

"Working as an Executive Producer of Reno 911! alongside Ben and Tom was one of the great professional experiences of my career," said Landgraf. "These guys are extremely talented writer/actor/producers. This script is hysterical and I'm thrilled that they chose to bring it to FX."

Garant and Lennon are executive producers along with Peter Principato and Paul Young. The pilot will be produced by FX Productions and it will be shot in the Los Angeles area in September.

FX Productions co-produces the Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) award-winning Damages and Justified (with Sony Pictures Television), the critically acclaimed hit drama series Sons of Anarchy (with Fox 21) and the upcoming drama series Lights Out (with Fox Television Studios) starring Holt McCallany. FX Productions is the sole production entity of FX comedy series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, Archer and Louie.

FX is the flagship general entertainment basic cable network from Fox. Launched in June of 1994, FX is carried in more than 96 million homes. The diverse schedule includes a growing roster of critically acclaimed and award-winning original series, an established film library of acquired box-office hit movies, and an impressive lineup of acquired hit series.
