‘Better Things’ Trailer: Pamela Adlon Struggles To Make A Living & Raise Three Kids In FX Series Co-Created By Louis C.K.

There's what you want and then there's what you get.
Better Things

Think about what you want and boil it down to three words. For Sam Fox, played by Pamela Adlon in the new FX comedy “Better Things,” those three words would be: “Mature, Lady and Sex.”   

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.

Aldon and C.K. previously worked together on “Louie,” where she portrayed the title character’s on-again, off-again flame.
