Nat Faxon, Judy Greer comedy among new series picked up by FX

FX’s comedy slate expansion continues, this time with an announcement from the network that it has ordered two new comedies to series, both set to debut this summer.

The first, titled Married, stars Oscar-winning screenwriter and frequent Jim Rash collaborator Nat Faxon and Judy Greer as a married couple named Russ and Lina. Described as a half-hour comedy “about being miserably in love,” the show also features Go On alum Brett Gelman and Jenny Slate, who created the web series Marcel the Shell With Shoes On. Andrew Gurland (The Virginity Hit, Mail Order Wife), who wrote and directed the pilot script, will serve as exec producer/showrunner.

The other new comedy comes from Stephen Falk and stars The Wolf of Wall Street‘s Aya Cash and Chris Geere (The Spa). Titled You’re the Worst, it is billed as a comedy 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 set to debut in July.

The announcement comes in the midst of a busy comedy development season for FX, which has recently announced pilots from people like Denis Leary, Louis C.K., and an animated project from Seth Rogen.
