FX Orders Comedy About a Toxic Romance Deadline
FX has ordered a comedy pilot about a toxic, self-destructive relationship. Deadline.com reports that the cable channel ordered "You're the Worst," written and created by Stephen Falk.
Falk, who is a co-executive producer and writer on "Weeds" and on Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black," also created and executive produced the NBC comedy "Next Caller," the story says.
FX has been ordering comedy projects, giving a pilot order to "Man Seeking Woman" and ordering an unnamed Martin Lawrence project with a 10/90 order, similar to Charlie Sheen's "Anger Management." The order includes an initial production of 10 episodes, with an additional 90-episode order triggered if the first 10 reach a ratings threshold.
