FX has been pumping out excellent content over the last decade and now they’ve got two more hits on their hands and they are doubling down. The cable network has renewed both Atlanta and Better Things.
“It’s really gratifying to launch two new comedies that have received overwhelming critical acclaim right out of the gate and that are emblematic of FX’s award-winning brand,” said Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, presidents of original programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. “It is clear to us that ‘Atlanta’ and ‘Better Things’ have struck a nerve with viewers, which is a credit to Donald Glover’s vision for ‘Atlanta’ and Pamela Adlon’s vision for ‘Better Things.’ They, along with their spectacular casts, writers and directors, have created exceptional shows that we are incredibly proud to produce.”
Atlanta follows two cousins who work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and their families’ lives. Glover — who created, executive producers and stars in the series — toplines the comedy, alongside Brian Tyree Henry and Lakeith Stanfield.
Better Things is about a single working actor — played by Pamala Adlon — raising her three daughters, portrayed by Mikey Madison, Hannah Alligood and Olivia Edward. Adlon serves as executive producer with Louis C.K., Blair Breard and Dave Becky.
