Starring Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal and Ron Perlman, the critically acclaimed Sons of Anarchy kicks off FX’s fall season on Sept. 7 at 10 PM. Sons is an adrenaline-rich drama with darkly comedic undertones that explores a notorious outlaw motorcycle club and its desire to protect its livelihood while ensuring that their simple, sheltered town of Charming, California remains exactly that: charming. The MC must confront threats from drug dealers, corporate developers, hate groups and overzealous law officers. Sons of Anarchy was created by Kurt Sutter who is Executive Producer/Showrunner. John Linson and Art Linson are Executive Producers. The series is produced by FX Productions and Fox 21. FX will air for the third season of Sons.
Debuting on Sept. 8 at 10 PM, Terriers, from creator/executive producer Ted Griffin (Ocean’s Eleven) and executive producer Shawn Ryan (The Shield), is a comedic drama starring Donal Logue (The Tao of Steve, Damages) and Michael Raymond-James (True Blood). It centers on “Hank Dolworth” (Logue), an ex-cop who partners with his best friend “Britt Pollack” (Raymond-James) to launch an unlicensed private investigation business. The duo, both struggling with maturity issues, solve crimes while avoiding danger and responsibility. Craig Brewer (Hustle and Flow, The Shield) directed the pilot episode. Terriers is produced by Fox 21. FX will air 13 episodes of Terriers.
The sixth season of critically acclaimed hit comedy It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia returns Thursdays at 10 PM beginning Sept. 16. The series stars Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito as the self-centered owners of Paddy’s Pub in Philadelphia who will do just about anything, no matter how reprehensible, in attempt to better their own situation. The series was created by McElhenney and is executive produced by McElhenney, Day, Howerton, Michael Rotenberg and Nick Frenkel. The series is produced by FX productions. FX will air 13 episodes for season six of Sunny.
After a successful rookie season in ’09, The League (9/16) returns to its Thursday, 10:30 PM time slot following Sunny. Set against the backdrop of a fantasy football league, The League is comedy about friendship, marriage, parenting, and growing up or refusing to grow up. It 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. The ensemble features Mark Duplass, Stephen Rannazzisi, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Katie Aselton and Jon Lajoie. The League is produced by FX Productions.
