FX Networks on Thursday announced winter premiere dates for some new and returning series, including a Tuesday timeslot for limited series “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
The networks kick off their winter programming with the FXX return of comedies “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “Men Seeking Woman” on Wednesday, Jan. 6. “Sunny,” the longest-running series in FX Networks history, opens its 11th season at 10 p.m., followed by “Men” at 10:30 p.m. for its second season.
Zach Galifianakis’ new comedy “Baskets” will premiere Thursday, Jan. 21 at 10 on FX. The show follows Chip Baskets (Galifianakis) in his dream of being a French clown — however, reality keeps interfering.
The much-anticipated “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson” will bow Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 10 on FX. Based on the book “The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson” by Jeffrey Toobin, the series is a look at the Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers. Its cast includes John Travolta, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Sarah Paulson, David Schwimmer and Courtney B. Vance.
Critically acclaimed “The Americans” will return to FX for its fourth season in March, the network said, but a premiere date has not been finalized.
