breeders trailer

Parenting is hard. Who knew? Apparently not Martin Freeman in his new FX comedy series Breeders, which brings the Fargo star back to the network that earned him an Emmy nomination. But despite the common knowledge of the difficulty of parenthood, a whole FX comedy series about Freeman struggling to raise two kids with his equally tired wife (Daisy Haggard) does sound like the kind of show I want to see. Watch the Breeders trailer below.

fargo season 4 trailer

Eyebrows were raised when Chris Rock, one of America’s most renowned comedians who rarely dips his toes into drama, was cast in Fargo. Noah Hawley’s anthological send-up of the Coen brothers’ classic had some winking humor to it, but was first and foremost a meaty drama into which character actors could sink their teeth. But the Rock-led Fargo season 4 looks to be the zaniest installment of the FX series yet. Watch the Fargo season 4 trailer below.

Devs trailer

As far as I’m concerned, Alex Garland is two for two as a director so far. Both Ex Machina and Annihilation are fantastic, challenging, mesmerizing movies, so I’m naturally very excited to see what he does with Devs, his tech thriller TV series which debuts in a couple of months. And I’m even more excited about the show after seeing its first full trailer, which FX released online today. Check it out below to remind you how badly you’ve needed some Nick Offerman in your life.

A Christmas Carol trailer

We’re just over a month away from Christmas, and while that means we’re going to be spending lots of time in theaters catching up on some of the year’s best movies, FX is giving us something else to watch in our downtime at home. The cable channel is airing a “dark reimagining” of A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens’ classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge as he’s guilted into transforming from a penny-pinching, Christmas-hating miser into the world’s best boss. But if you’re looking for a lighthearted version of this story, look elsewhere: Guy Pearce‘s Scrooge adds “sex creep” to his character’s long list of terrible attributes in this one. Read More »

Y cast

Y: The Last Man is one of the most universally lauded comic book series of the past few decades, and it will soon set to receive a star-studded TV series adaptation at FX, simply titled YBrian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s Eisner Award-winning series is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi parable that centered on Yorick Brown, the last surviving male of the human race after a cataclysmic event wiped out all other living mammals with a Y chromosome. The comic book series was celebrated for its vision of matriarchal society, but in the years since its publication between 2002 and 2008, our understanding of biological sex and gender has evolved. And it seems that FX’s Y is taking that into account.

A casting call is circulating for a transgender character original to the series. As a transgender man, the new character would survive this apocalypse because he was biologically born a woman. While this casting addresses some of the failings that the original series had in regards to diversity and representation, a transgender character joining the cast potentially opens the floodgates for a whole new set of issues.

FX on Hulu

When The Walt Disney Company acquired 20th Century Fox, that included the cable network FX and all of the shows that come along with it. Since Disney is also the majority stakeholder in Hulu, they’re bringing them both together with a new deal that will bring FX’s existing shows, new shows, and nearly all of their old shows exclusively to Hulu.

During a fourth quarter earnings call on Thursday, Disney CEO Bob Iger laid out the company’s plan to create “FX on Hulu” starting in March. Along with the library content of old and current shows, “FX on Hulu” will also see upcoming shows moved from airing on FX to debuting only through streaming by way of this new deal between the cable channel and streaming service. Find out more about the “FX on Hulu” deal below. Read More »
