(NEW YORK) — FX has announced that its new network, FXX, will debut September 2 in 74 million households.
The new network will be geared toward a younger audience, with popular shows such as It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League and Legit filling the schedule. In addition, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell is moving from FX to FXX and will be on five nights a week.
The announcement was made Thursday during the network’s media presentation in New York City. FX president and general manager John Landgraf said FXX will be “slightly more comedy focused,” and will target viewers between the ages of 18 and 34.
FX also announced Thursday that it has ordered a 10-episode limited series adaptation of Joel and Ethan Cohen’s 1996 award-winning film Fargo.
