FX ADDS SEASON FOUR OF "THE LEAGUE" TO ITS ROSTER

Network Orders 13 Episodes for Fourth Season

Production Will Begin Summer of 2012 and Season Four Will Premiere in the Fall

LOS ANGELES, December 13, 2011 - FX has picked up a fourth season of its comedy series The League, ordering 13 episodes, announced Nick Grad, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, FX Networks.

Currently airing its third season, The League is averaging series-high ratings across the board. On a first-run basis, the show is averaging 1.7 million Total Viewers and 1.5 million Adults 18-49, up +25% and +32, respectively, vs. season two. On a multi-run total basis, season two delivered 2.9 million total viewers and 2.5 million adults 18-49.

This season has featured an all-star lineup of comedic guest stars including Seth Rogen, Jeff Goldblum, Sarah Silverman, Ray Liotta, Will Forte and Eliza Dushku.

"The League continues to be one of our most successful comedy series both creatively and from a ratings standpoint," said Grad. "Jackie and Jeff Schaffer, along with our terrific cast, are doing wonderful work each week to make one of the funniest shows on television and we're excited to order another season."

"We are thrilled to do more shows with a cast that makes us laugh hard everyday, on a network that actually lets us put those jokes on air," said the Schaffers. "In the words of Taco: The League on FX on Thursday nights is a law, like water or dinosaurs."

To be a fan of The League, you don't need to know much about fantasy football, or sports at all. You just need to have friends that you hate. FX's ensemble comedy follows a group of old friends in a fantasy football league who care deeply about one another - so deeply that they use every opportunity to make each other's lives miserable. It was created by the husband-and-wife team of Jeff Schaffer (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld) and Jackie Marcus Schaffer (Disturbia, EuroTrip) who serve as executive producers and directors. The ensemble cast features Mark Duplass, Stephen Rannazzisi, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Katie Aselton and Jon Lajoie. The series is produced by FX Productions.

There are three episodes of The League remaining in its third season. Episode 11, "The Guest Bong," airs this Thursday at 10:30PM E/P. Pete's new girlfriend wants to help him with his line up; Kevin's past at the DA's office has him running scared; Ruxin runs afoul of his company's email policies; and auto-correct gets everybody in trouble.

FX is the flagship general entertainment basic cable network from the Fox Networks Group. Launched in June of 1994, FX is carried in more than 98 million homes. The diverse schedule includes a growing roster of critically acclaimed and award-winning original series; an established film library with box-office hits from 20th Century Fox and other studios; and an impressive roster of acquired hit series.
