FX Announces They Will Be Launching A New Network This Fall!

fx announces launch of new network fxx in the fall

FX is looking to make some big moves this fall as they recently announced they will be launching a new network later this year!

Network President John Landgraf confirmed their plans to launch of of their new channel, FXX on September 2nd. That's right. It's like FX, just with another X. How original!

FXX will aim for a target audience of 18-34 year olds, a demographic that shouldn't be to hard to reach considering the network will be inheriting HIGHlarious veteran shows like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The League when their new seasons start!

The new channel will also feature reruns of classics like Rescue Me and Arrested Development, which is definitely a good thing because who doesn't love the Bluths??

While FX is certainly lending a helping hand to their new baby bro, they aren't giving up hits like Louie, Archer, or Wilfred, meaning they will probably have to launch a few pilots for original programming. But considering the network's recent track record with comedies, that probably won't be too difficult!

We're always down for a good laugh, so we're definitely looking forward to FXX! Hopefully it can keep up with the rest in this golden age for cable television!

JT Considers Big Screen Baywatch Role!

Justin Timberlake And David Hasselhoff Baywatch The Movie

There's going to be a Baywatch movie?

It might star Justin Timberlake??

Can you hold our latte while our head EXPLODES!?!

Baywatch was quite possibly the most ridiculously entertaining show of the entire '90s! We are beyond excited that it's making a transition to the big screen!

JT is rumored to play an ex-Olympic swimmer forced to rescue beautiful babes with bouncy breasts after his gold medal dreams are crushed.

It sounds like The Cutting Edge — but BETTER!

Rescue Me creator Peter Tolan penned the script which is tonally similar to the 21 Jump Street reboot with Channing Tatum!

Note to the creators:

If David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson don't make cameos, we will write strongly-worded letters to our local Congressmen!!

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!
