FX has announced the premiere dates for Season 6 of “American Horror Story” and two new comedies, Donald Glover’s “Atlanta” and Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K.’s “Better Things.”

Created by and starring Glover, “Atlanta” will have its series premiere on FX on Tuesday, September 6 at 10 p.m. The show follows two cousins who work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families. Earn Marks (Glover) is a young manager trying to get his cousin’s career off the ground. Alfred Marks (Brian Tyree Henry) is a new hot rapper trying to understand the line between real life and street life. Darius (Lakeith Lee Stanfield) is Alfred’s right-hand man and visionary. Vanessa (Zazie Beetz) is Earn’s best friend and the mother of Earn’s daughter. Glover serves as executive producer, along with Paul Simms and Dianne McGunigle of MGMT Entertainment. “Atlanta” is produced by FX Productions.

Better Things,” co-created by Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K. and starring Adlon, gets its series premiere on FX on Thursday, September 8 at 10 p.m. “Better Things” centers on Sam Fox (Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters, Max (Mikey Madison), Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. She’s mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate, who lives across the street. Sam is flawed and fierce with her love for her daughters, and her own mother, as well. Sometimes, heaping the love on when she feels guilty. Sam’s just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two and also — just maybe — squeeze in some private time once in a while. Adlon serves as executive producer alongside C.K., Blair Breard, Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment. “Better Things” is produced by C.K.’s production company Pig Newton for FX Productions.

American Horror Story” will return for Season 6 on Wednesday, September 14 at 10 p.m. No word yet on the theme for this season of the horror anthology, which recently revealed a mysterious teaser image. Cast members Lady Gaga and Cheyenne Jackson have hinted that they will both return for the new season, alongside series mainstay Sarah Paulson.
