FX has given 10-episode series orders to two new comedies — “Married,” starring Judy Greer and Nat Faxon, and “You’re the Worst,” from “Weeds” executive producer Stephen Falk. The new shows, both from FX Productions, will premiere on the network in July.
“Married” comes from Andrew Gurland (of the found footage movies “Mail Order Wife” and “The Virginity Hit”), and stars Greer and Faxon as Lina and Russ Bowman, best friends fighting to hold their marriage together in the face of suburban woes and a lack of a sex life. Greer’s no stranger to FX — she voices Cheryl/Carol on “Archer.” Jenny Slate and Brett Gelman co-star as another married couple. Gurland wrote the script for and directed the pilot, and is executive producing the series alongside Paul Young and Peter Principato.
“You’re the Worst” is a love story between two self-destructive, toxic people (Chris Geere and Aya Cash) who fall for each other and attempt to have a relationship. The series co-stars Kether Donohue and Desmin Borges. In addition to his work on “Weeds,” Falk created “Next Caller,” the NBC Dane Cook comedy that was canceled before it aired in 2012.
