PAMELA ADLON MOVES ON TO "BETTER THINGS"

New Comedy Pilot Created By and Starring Adlon and Directed by Louis C.K.

LOS ANGELES, January 18, 2015 - FX Networks has ordered the comedy pilot Better Things, created by and starring Pamela Adlon and directed by fellow Louie star Louis C.K., it was announced today by John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions.

If you think being a parent is hard, try raising three girls by yourself. In Better Things, Adlon plays "Sam," a working actor trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters' lives, have fun with a friend or two, and also - just maybe - squeeze in some sex once in a while. Her life is funny to watch, but you wouldn't want to live it (except sometimes).

Adlon (Louie, Californication) and Louis C.K. (Louie) will write the pilot and serve as Executive Producers, along with Blair Breard, Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment. The pilot is produced by Louis C.K.'s production company, Pig Newton, and FX Productions.

Adlon has been nominated for two Emmy awards for Louie, and she won an Emmy for her voice-over performance as "Bobby Hill" on King of the Hill. Her work on Louie has also resulted in a WGA Award and two PGA Award nominations.

Louis C.K. has won two Emmy awards for Louie, two Emmy awards for his comedy specials and one Emmy award for The Chris Rock Show. He has received two Golden Globe nominations for Louie, a WGA Award for Louie and a SAG Award for American Hustle.

Better Things is the fifth comedy series pilot produced or ordered by FX Networks within the past year, including the comedy series pilots Atlanta, created by and starring Donald Glover, and Pariah, starring Bill Burr for Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton. These projects reinforce FX Networks' position as the leading comedy brand in television.

This week, FXX launched Man Seeking Woman, starring Jay Baruchel from Simon Rich, Jonathan Krisel and Broadway Video, and in April FX will premiere The Comedians, starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad. Next summer FX also launches Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, starring Denis Leary and John Corbett. Earlier this year, FX ordered Baskets (2016), starring Zach Galifianakis from Galifianakis and Louis C.K. and directed by Jonathan Krisel, and the untitled Tracy Morgan project (TBD).

Those new projects join the existing FX Networks comedy slate which includes Archer (FX), Louie (FX), Married (FX), It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FXX), The League (FXX), and You're the Worst (FXX).
