Much to the chagrin of pretty much everyone who’s ever watched it, “Louie” may never come back. That doesn’t mean that series creator/star Louis C.K. hasn’t been busy, of course — in addition to “Horace and Pete,” he’s also co-created a new show for FX. “Better Things” stars and was co-created by Pamela Adlon, familiar to “Louie” fans as the title character’s on-again, off-again flame. Check out a new teaser below.
“Game of Thrones” fans will instantly recognize the 30-second spot as a riff on on last year’s season finale, which made the shame bell an instant meme. Adlon, in line at a coffee shop, mutters “shame” every time someone walks in or out of the store and triggers the bell — to her amusement if not anyone else’s.
Adlon plays Sam, a divorced actor raising three daughters on her lonesome. Season one of “Better Things,” which will consist of 10 episodes, premieres September 8 on FX.
