Somehow, we don't see this doing as well, but a tip of the cosmo for trying.
Denis Leary has developed a new series of FX, which he describes at the “the anti-Sex and the City." The pilot is still being written and the plot revolves around a "darker version" of modern day single woman. Taking the starring role in the project is Callie Thorne, one of Denis' costars from Rescue Me. She describes the show as:
“… more AbFab, which is a very good thing. The idea is that they’re single and that they’re not the type to whine about boys and babies; they’re more apt to make fun of the girls who do. Sometimes these two women aren’t likable at all.”
If women won't like them, then what is the point? You can't pull six seasons and two movies out of characters no one likes!
We don't know about this. We think we see a flop.

We're so glad she's feeling better!
Maura Tierney is returning to television to reprise her role on FX's Rescue Me!
Her character won't appear until Season 7 since they're shooting both Season 6 and 7 back to back, but show creators Denis Leary and Peter Tolan are thrilled to have her back. Says Tolan:
"We loved working with her — that was kind of a big deal to get her. We have a deal where we can use her for four episodes. And since we have that deal, we will take advantage of it."
Maura had to drop out of NBC's drama Parenthood to undergo breast cancer treatment, but she did go back to work in Feburary for the play North Atlantic in Los Angeles back in February. Her rep says:
"She has finished treatment and is doing very well and is happy to move forward with the next phase of her life."
Good for her!
