FX is really starting to concentrate on their late-night programming.
They've just ordered six-episodes of a new late-night series staring comedian W. Kamau Bell and executive produced by Chris Rock.
The project is untitled so far but it will be a weekly half-hour series about politics, pop culture, race, religion, sex and more.
The exec who ordered the show explained their decision to order the show, saying:
"The presentation pilot that Chris and Kamau shot was terrific. Kamau is a tremendous young comedian who has a very smart and sharp take on life.
Working with Chris will only bring out the best of his talents. This series, along with Russell Brand’s Strangely Uplifting, puts FX on really solid footing in the late-night arena."
Sounds about right … especially when you consider the OTHER show the network has planned for it's late-night line-up. As we've previously reported, FX has also ordered a Russell Brand-fronted show that should be similar to the The Daily Show.
But we assume that shows gonna be a bit goofier!
With all this concentration on late-night programming… will the day time suffer?
Probably not. LOLz!
