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!
