Cassius and Clay

FXX picked up a new animated series called Cassius and Clay (above), presented in the same style of their successful comedy Archer. In fact, for the latter series’ seventh season, it will be joining Cassius and Clay on FXX in 2016, joining shows like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, You’re the Worst and Man Seeking Woman.

Cassius and Clay is a new buddy action comedy featuring It’s Always Sunny star Kaitlin Olson as Cassius Cordwood, a hard-drinking, quick-thinking, fast-talking bull-shitter who has more debts than sense and Lake Bell as Shopcarter Clay, the fastest gun in the post-apocalyptic South — she doesn’t go looking for trouble, she shares a station wagon with it. Here’s how Nick Grad of FX describes the show:

“Tearing through the Smoky Mountains, Cassius and Clay don’t just survive the end of the world – they thrive on it with a pack of misfits who persevere against all odds in this Southern-fried apocalypse.”

The show will also feature the voice talents of Susan Sarandon, as a series regular, along with JB Smoove, Kevin Michael Richardson, Jeffrey Tambor, Katy Mixon, Robert Patrick and Stephen Root. Archer creator Adam Reed will write and executive produce the series with Megan Ganz (Modern Family, Community).

Better Things

Better Things - Pamela Adlon

FX has ordered a first season for a new comedy series called Better Things, featuring recurring Louie guest star Pamela Adlon, who is also executive producing the show along with Louis C.K. (both co-created the show as well). Here’s the official synopsis of the new show starring Adlon as working single mother:

What’s it like to be a working woman raising three daughters on her own? Don’t ask. Ok. Since you asked. Things get gnarly. And bloody. And funny. Well to you, anyway.  In Better Things, Adlon plays “Sam,” a working actor with no filter trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two, and also – just maybe – squeeze in some private time once in a while. Her life is funny to watch, but you wouldn’t want to live it (except sometimes).

Mikey Madison, Riley Watson and Olivia Edward star in the series as Adlon’s three daughters.

No release date has been set for Better Things, but stay tuned for more on that show and all of the forthcoming fall television programs coming very soon.
