FX Orders 2nd Cycle Of Chris Rock-Produced 'Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell'

Good news for Chris Rock and W. Kamau Bell! With a presidential election sure to dominate on and offline conversations for the rest of the year, Bell should have enough fodder.

Details from the FX press release…

NEW YORK, September 18, 2012 – FX has ordered the second cycle of its first year late night comedy series Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell for seven half-hour installments, announced Nick Grad, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, FX.

Totally Biased will conclude its six-episode first cycle this Thursday, September 20 at 11:00 PM, and the second cycle of shows will begin on Thursday, October 11 in a new 11:30 PM time period, following the return of BrandX with Russell Brand that night at 11:00 PM.

What we’ve seen through five shows only reinforces our belief that Kamau is one of the sharpest, smartest and funniest young comedians in the business,” said Grad. “He brings an interesting perspective to late-night TV and has proven to be very comfortable in this format. That, coupled with the experience that Chris Rock and Chuck Skylar bring to the show, makes this order an easy decision.

Totally Biased, from Bell and Executive Producers Chris Rock, Chuck Sklar and Keri Smith Esguia, stars standup comedian W. Kamau Bell as he hilariously dissects politics, pop culture, race, religion, sex and the media from his own unique point of view. The show also features live guests and taped segments. Totally Biased is produced by FX Productions.

I’m excited to be given the opportunity to continue working with the amazing FX and the brilliant Chris Rock,” said W. Kamau Bell. “We’ll be putting out new episodes, even more Totally Biased than before.

Chris Rock added, “I’m very excited and looking forward to working with the good people at FX. Please don’t tell Rupert Murdoch.

The October 11th return of Totally Biased caps off a big night of comedy on FX, featuring the season 8 premiere of the acclaimed hit series, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (10:00 PM), the fourth season debut of The League (10:30 PM), and the return of BrandX with Russell Brand (11:00 PM).

Yaaay!! I am so glad to hear this! W. Kamau Bell is brilliant and funny as all get out. The only news I don't like about this is FX moving the show to 11:30pm from 11:00pm. Not cool, FX. But, it's available "On Demand" and can be DVR'd. If anyone out there hasn't seen "Totally Biased", try and catch it and check it out! Support a Brotha!
