Baskets and Better Things cancelled?
FX is said to be ‘reviewing’ the situation following sexual harassment claims made against exec producer Louis C.K., per Deadline:
“We are obviously very troubled by the allegations about Louis C.K. published in The New York Times today,” the company said. “The network has received no allegations of misconduct by Louis C.K. related to any of our 5 shows produced together over the past 8 years. FX Networks and FXP take all necessary actions to protect our employees and thoroughly investigate any allegations of misconduct within our workplace. That said, the matter is currently under review.”
I hear that for now, there are no plans for any of C.K.’s current series to be taken off the air/digital platforms or stop production, with business continuing as usual while FX is investigating.
Baskets and Better Things have both been renewed for Season 3, to premiere in 2018. Will FX change course and cancel the comedies or preserve their renewal status? Stay tuned for the very latest…
