FX KEEPS LATE NIGHT LAUGHING

"BRANDX" AND "TOTALLY BIASED" RECEIVE 13 EPISODE PICK UPS

BrandX Expands to a Full-Hour

NEW YORK, November 27, 2012 - FX has ordered 13 additional episodes of both of its late night comedy series, BrandX with Russell Brand and Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, announced Nick Grad, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, FX.

The final 2012 installment of BrandX with Russell Brand will air as a special one-hour episode on Thursday, November 29 at 11:30pm ET/PT and feature special guests: comedian Sarah Silverman and author and new age philosopher Daniel Pinchbeck. When BrandX returns on Thursday, February 7 at 11:30pm ET/PT, the show will expand to a full-hour format.

The final 2012 episode of Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell will air Thursday, November 29 at 11:00pm ET/PT, with Bell welcoming The Daily Show writer and correspondent John Oliver as his guest. Totally Biased will return with a new cycle of episodes Thursday, January 17 at 11:00pm ET/PT.

"We're proud to have two of the most strikingly original and funny voices in late night as part of the FX comedy lineup," said Grad. "Russell's irrepressible energy and unique style have made BrandX a daring show where anything can happen. Kamau is one of the sharpest, smartest and funniest comedians in the business. The New York Times called him 'the most promising talent in political comedy in many years,' and we couldn't agree more."

BrandX aims Russell Brand's unique, rollicking skillset at the traditional monologue, celebrity interviews, and audiences segments. The series is produced by FX Productions, in association with Branded Films and Dakota Films. Executive Producers are Brand, Troy Miller, Nik Linnen and John Noel.

Totally Biased, from Bell and Executive Producers Chris Rock, Chuck Sklar and Keri Smith Esguia, stars standup comedian W. Kamau Bell as he hilariously dissects politics, pop culture, race, religion, sex and the media from his own unique point of view. The show features live guests and taped segments. The show is produced by FX Productions.
