russell brand gets a late night series on fx

Looks like we'll have a new reason to watch FX after American Horror Story is done for the season…

FX has JUST closed a deal with Russell Brand for "six half-hour installments of an unscripted late night series," which is currently untitled and scheduled to debut in Spring 2012.

According to the press release, the show will feature the following:

"…Brand’s unvarnished, unfiltered take on current events, politics and pop culture. The six installments will be shot in front of a live audience and the format will draw heavily on interaction with that audience."

Here's what FX's Executive Vice President of Original Programming Nick Grad had to say about it:

"We’re very excited to add Russell Brand’s bracingly funny, original, and honest voice to the FX comedy line-up. We look forward to supporting Russell and his partner Troy Miller’s ambition to strip down the hosted comedy format to its most fundamental elements and to create something daring and unfiltered for the FX audience."

And here's what Russell himself had to say about it:

"I am so excited I’m on the point of climax, in fact I will put the 'O' into FX, which spells FOX, which is actually the channel’s real name. That’s the only thing that worries me about all this to be honest. At least I’ll be able to have a Christmas drink with Bill O’Reilly."

LOLz! Congratulations, Russell! We have no doubt that this will be absolutely HIGHlarious!!!!

What do U think? Will U tune in for Russell Brand's new FX late night series this spring???

    He completely creeps me out. Totally. Absolutely. GFL.

    What a joke! Everyone is already predicting that this will be an even bigger bomb than his movies are. He's hated as much here as he is in England. He's just so gross looking and is not funny or even remotely amusing. Leno (who I can't stand) is hilarious, compared to Russell.

    :) I'll watch!

    This is good news. Finally HOllywood has figured out that Brand has no career in movies. Now maybe people that are talented will get those jobs instead of the vile and untalented Brand.
