The FX comedies “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “The League” debut new seasons at 9 and 9:30 p.m., respectively, Thursday, Oct. 11.
Details on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” beginning its eighth season; and “The League,” beginning its fourth season, provided by FX, are as follows:
- The Gang returns to Paddy’s Pub with Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank (Danny DeVito.)
Last season, The Gang lived it up at the Jersey Shore, Frank married a hooker, and Mac got very, very fat. This season, stay tuned to see The Gang go to therapy, hunt for Nazi treasure, and try to undermine Philly’s toughest union – the trash men! Charlie and Dee find love, Frank re-enters the business world, and Dee blurs the lines between the real and virtual worlds when she falls into an obsession with computer games. Get ready for even more disagreements, disunion and divisiveness as The Gang tries once again to scheme their way to happiness!
“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” was created by McElhenney and is executive produced by McElhenney, Day, Howerton, Michael Rotenberg, Nick Frenkel, Tom Lofaro, Rob Rosell, Scott Marder and David Hornsby. The show is produced by FX Productions.
- To be a fan of “The League” on FX, you don’t need to know much about Fantasy Football, or sports at all. You just need to have friends that you hate. FX’s ensemble comedy follows a group of old friends in a Fantasy Football league who care deeply about one another – so deeply that they use every opportunity to make each other’s lives miserable.
“The League” was created by the husband-and-wife team of Jeff Schaffer (“Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Seinfeld”) and Jackie Marcus Schaffer (“Disturbia,” “Eurotrip”) who serve as executive producers and directors. The series is produced by FX Productions.
“The League” features an ensemble cast of rising actors/comedians. Mark Duplass (“Humpday”) plays “Pete,” the perennial league champ who is struggling to become an adult. Stephen Rannazzisi (Paul Blart: Mall Cop”) is “Kevin,” a happily married father and commissioner of the league. Nick Kroll (“Get Him to the Greek”) plays “Ruxin,” who believes he is the smartest of the group but can’t figure out how exactly the other guys are screwing him over. “Andre,” played by Paul Scheer (NTSF.:SD:SUV), has continued to be the punching bag of the group since their high school days – a fact that hasn’t changed despite the fact he is now a successful plastic surgeon. Jon Lajoie is “Taco,” Kevin’s little brother, a part-time musician and full-time stoner with little interest in Fantasy other than hanging with his buddies (whom he struggles to remember). Katie Aselton (“The Freebie”) plays “Jenny,” Kevin’s wife and his better half – especially when it comes to Fantasy Football.
