FX’s Premiere Of ‘You’re The Worst’ And ‘Married’-July 17th
Premiere screening of FX’s You’re The Worst’ and ‘Married’.
YOU’RE THE WORST, is an original comedy from writer and executive producer Stephen Falk that puts a dark twist on the romantic comedy genre. Narcissistic, brash, and self-destructive “Jimmy Shive-Overly,” played by Chris Geere (The Spa), thinks all relationships are doomed. Cynical, people-pleasing, and stubborn “Gretchen Cutler,” played by Aya Cash (The Wolf of Wall Street), knows that relationships aren’t for her. So when they meet at a wedding, it’s only natural that the two of them go home together and, despite their better judgment, begin to find themselves falling for each other. Rounding out the cast is Desmin Borges (The Good Wife), who plays “Edgar Quintero,” Jimmy’s once homeless, war veteran roommate; and Kether Donohue (The Carrie Diaries) as “Lindsay Jillian,” Gretchen’s best friend and former partner in crime who’s now struggling with a life of domesticity. YOU’RE THE WORST is a modern look at love and happiness told through the eyes of two people who haven’t been very successful with either. It’s the story of Gretchen and Jimmy, fear, heartbreak, romance, sex, food, Los Angeles, friendship, and the fact that sometimes the worst people make the best partners.
MARRIED, is a half hour comedy about being miserably in love. Russ (Nat Faxon) and Lina Bowman (Judy Greer) can barely remember what life was like before kids, debt, and suburbia rained on their romance — but every once in a while, in between the arguments about their declining sex life and who’s driving carpool, they are reminded what drew them together in the first place — they’re best friends. The show also features Russ and Lina’s friend AJ (Brett Gelman), who is recently divorced and pretending he’s over his wife, and their other friend Jess (Jenny Slate), who is married to a much older man who can’t keep up with her. MARRIEDwas created by Andrew Gurland (The Virginity Hit, Mail Order Wife), who wrote and directed the pilot and serves as Executive Producer/Showrunner, alongside Executive Producers Peter Principato and Paul Young.
