The League returns on September 4th, and will be a part of the new FX comedy channel FXX. If you’ve been delaying watching the show because you aren’t a football fan you should really get over that. Mainly because the show isn’t really about sports. Rather it stars a handful of comedians (Jon LaJoie, Nick Kroll, Mark Duplass, Paul Scheer, Jason Mantzoukas, and Steve Rannazzisi) who play lifelong friends that do everything in their power to bust each other’s chops for 22 minutes each week.
The network has put the full frontal promo assault on marketing the new season/network move that they rolled out 10, count ’em 10 promos featuring the comedians and some NFL players. If I followed sports, I’d probably be able to tell you the players that are in each of these clips but like I mentioned above, that’s not necessary. I can tell you that Kristin Cavallari is one of the clips and is married to football player Jay Cutler, but that’s thanks to People Magazine.
The new season of The League premieres on September 4th on FXX.
