Both comedies are slated to premiere in July
FX has given series orders to the Andrew Gurland comedy “Married,” starring Judy Greer and Nat Faxon, as well as the comedy “You're the Worst,” with both series receiving 10-episode orders.
“Married” (pictured), which is created and executive produced by Gurland, is a half-hour comedy about being miserably in love. Russ (Faxon) and Lina Bowman (Greer) can barely remember what life was like before kids, debt, and suburbia rained on their romance — but every once in a while, in between the arguments about their declining sex life and who's driving carpool, they are reminded what drew them together in the first place — they're best friends.
The show also features Russ and Lina's friend AJ (Brett Gelman), who is recently divorced and pretending he's over his wife, and their other friend Jess (Jenny Slate, “House of Lies”), who is married to a much older man who can't keep up with her.
“You're the Worst,” meanwhile, hails from creator Stephen Falk (“Weeds”) and stars Aya Cash (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Chris Geere (“The Spa”), Kether Donohue (“The Carrie Diaries”) and Desmin Borges (“The Good Wife”). The series is billed as a comedic love story about what happens when two toxic, self-destructive people (Cash and Geere) fall in love despite themselves and attempt the impossible — a relationship.
Both series are expected to premiere in July.
