Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon’s new series “Better Things” follows Sam Fox (played by Adlon), a single, working actor raising three daughters (Mikey Madison, Hannah Alligood, Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles all on her own. Along with her family, Fox also looks after her mother (Celia Imrie) who lives right across the street. Sam struggles to earn a living, raise her daughters, and find some private time along the way, all the while dealing with her complete lack of filter. Watch a promo for the series below featuring Fox shopping for pillows by using a nonstandard criteria.
Adlon is probably best known for her voice work, particularly the voice of Bobby Hill on the Mike Judge animated sitcom “King of the Hill,” for which she won an Emmy, and as Spinelli on the Disney Channel series “Recess.” She also co-starred as Louie’s wife on Louis C.K.’s short-lived HBO sitcom “Lucky Louie,” and was a recurring character on C.K.’s FX series “Louie” playing “Pamela,” a version of herself; she was also a co-producer and a writer on “Louie.” Adlon has also made several appearances on “Californication” as Marcy, the wife of Charlie (Evan Handler), the best friend and agent of protagonist Hank Moody (David Duchovny).
“Better Things” premieres on September 8th at 10pm Eastern only on FX.
