Days after he inked an overall deal with FX Networks and FX Productions, FX is developing two new comedies with “You’re the Worst” creator Stephen Falk, Variety has confirmed. Falk will serve as an exec producer on both development projects.
Falk will also serve as co-writer on the first potential series, an untitled semi-autobiographical comedy from “You’re the Worst” writer Alison Bennett, who will also write and exec produce. The project revolves around a character named Ali, an unrelenting dissatisfied television scribe who returns to her rual Pennsylvania hometown to live the simple life.
The second project, “Join Me,” is based on the 2003 novel of the same name by Danny Wallace. “You’re the Worst” writers Franklin Hardy and Shane Kosakowski will pen the script. The pair will also exec produce with Falk, plus Wallace and Tom Lassally of 3 Arts.
The news comes the week of the critically-acclaimed “You’re the Worst” finale, which airs this Wednesday (10:30 p.m.) on FXX.
Both projects hail from FX Productions.
