The series, co-created by Adlon and Louis C.K., follows a single, working actress raising three daughters in Los Angeles all on her own – and who also looks after her mother (Celia Imrie) who lives across the street. In the first trailer Sam struggles to earn a living, tries to navigates her kids’ lives, have some fun and find some private time for herself, all while having a complete lack of filter and wishing she had some extra help. The video goes to show how there’s a difference between what you want and what you get.
“Better Things” is directed by C.K. and will consist of 10 episodes. The series is semi-autobiographical based on Adlon’s life, similar to the way “Louie” is for C.K. Mikey Madison, Riley Watson, and Olivia Edward co-star as the three daughters.
Aldon and C.K. previously worked together on “Louie,” where she portrayed the title character’s on-again, off-again flame.
“Better Things” debuts September 8 on FX. Check out the full trailer below.
