FX orders a 10-episode limited series of Fargo.
FX orders comedy pilots How and Why from Charlie Kaufman, and Chozen from Grant Dekernion, Danny McBride and the team behind Eastbound & Down.
First of all, FX is becoming a triumvirate, with the launch of FXX (which disappointingly is not an edgy all-female channel) which will be aimed at “young adult viewers,” ages 18-34 and will include more comedy programming and movies. FXM continues to go for a slightly more mature audience with programming geared towards the 25-54 age bracket. The original FX will continue to run the gambit, with programming styled towards the 18-49 group that will start to include more miniseries and limited series.
Here’s what that actually means: Justified will remain on FX, while It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League and Legit will all move to FXX. Additionally, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell will now becoming regular late night show, airing five nights a week this fall on FXX.
BTW...those teasers for The Bridge...I'm already hooked!
Additionally, FX will also develop their own app that will act like HBOGo, allowing cable subscribers to watch their content anywhere. There will be plenty of content to watch — in addition to more drama series, all of the old favorites are back as well: Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story, Louie, Archer, Wilfred and The Americans.
