FX, the home of quality dramas, is looking to strike it equally rich in the comedy department.
With that in mind, the network will introduce two new half-hour series: The League; and Louie, which will join returning It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and upcoming animated series Archer.
The League, which premieres in November, focuses on marriage, male friendship and parenting in a suburban setting. Louie, which launches in early 2010, centers on comedian Louis C.K. and his life as a single father raising his two daughters in New York City.
Louis C.K.’s first sitcom, Lucky Louie, came and went after 13 episodes on HBO in the 2006-07 season.
