Jun 2, 2006  •  Post A Comment

FX has ordered 13 episodes of the one-hour drama “Dirt,” the network confirmed Friday.

“Dirt” is about a female tabloid magazine editor and her top photographer and is set against the world of celebrity journalism. The show is produced by Courteney Cox and David Arquette’s Coquette Productions.

The series could add some female perspective to the channel, whose current series such as “The Shield,” “Nip/Tuck” and “Rescue Me” all have male leads. “Dirt” will premiere later this year.

“Dirt” was one of two drama pilots FX ordered in December. A network representitive said the second, “Lowlife,” starring comedian Eddie Izzard, is still under consideration.
