Louis C.K.

You’re in for some good laughs this summer with FX and DIRECTV. Brand new series Anger Management, starring everyone’s favorite angry man, Charlie Sheen, and BrandX, featuring the outrageous Russell Brand are set to premiere, as well as all-new episodes of Wilfred and Louie. There’s no better way to beat the heat than with hilarious TV entertainment!

Anger Management
Bad boy Charlie Sheen is back and angrier than ever in Anger Management. The Two and a Half Men actor stars as “Charlie,” a former minor league baseball player turned therapist who specializes in anger management issues. Insert your own joke here. Also featuring Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith, Daniela Bobadilla, Michael Arden, and Noureen DeWulf. Anger Management kicks off June 28 at 9:00 p.m. on FX.

Wilfred is based on the Australian series of the same title and was adapted for FX by David Zuckerman (Family Guy, King of the Hill). In this live-action comedy, Ryan (Elijah Wood) is an average guy trying to make his way in the world. After befriending Wilfred (Jason Gann)—the neighbor’s chatty dog—Ryan learns how to overcome his fears while enduring the pet’s crude and honest character. Season 2 promises even more irreverent and existential adventures. Premieres June 28 at 10 p.m. on FX.

Everybody loves Louis C.K. Some say his comedy style is a mix of Seinfeld and Woody Allen. You can judge for yourself after catching fresh episodes of his critically-acclaimed FX original comedy series. Don’t miss his inventive imagination and punch lines crafted out of everyday ordeals. Each episode features a combination of scripted stories and stand-up comedy. Season 3 debuts June 28 at 10:30 p.m. on FX.

Russell Brand brings his stand-up comedy routine to television in the new series BrandX. The British comedian will have you in stitches with his unique take on politics, celebrity culture, and current events, while interacting with a live audience. BrandX premieres June 28 at 11 p.m. on FX.
