FX Networks and FX Productions severed ties with Louis C.K., including dumping him from the shows “Better Things,” “Baskets,” “One Mississippi” and “The Cops,” all of which C.K. either had a hand in developing or served in various writing, directing and producing roles.
“Baskets,” an FX series starring Zach Galifianakis, was renewed earlier this year for a third season. “Better Things,” which stars longtime Louis C.K. collaborator Pamela Adlon and also airs on FX, was also recently renewed for season three.
“One Mississippi,” starring Tig Notaro, runs on Amazon Prime, with C.K. initially listed among the show’s executive producers. Amazon has released two seasons of the show, on which FX Studios is among the producers. Notaro announced back in August that she was distancing herself from C.K. as allegations of sexual impropriety by C.K. were already beginning to surface.
“The Cops” is an animated series co-created, co-written and executive produced by C.K. and Albert Brooks. The show has been in the works for release on TBS in 2018. TBS has reportedly suspended production on the series, on which Brooks and C.K. were to voice the main characters.
The move by FX comes on the heels of a New York Times report published Nov. 9 detailing allegations of sexual impropriety by C.K., as we reported previously. C.K. has since expressed remorse for his actions.
