In great news for Louie fans, writer, producer, and guest star of the show Pamela Adlon has gotten her own show, Better Things on FX. She’ll write the pilot episode alongside Louis C.K., who will direct the ep. They’ll produce the show alongside Blair Breard and Dave Becky. In the show Adlon plays Sam, a working actor who raises three daughters by herself. FX’s description sounds like the show we would imagine for Adlon: “Her life is funny to watch, but you wouldn’t want to live it (except sometimes).” Bring on the awkward.
