Amid a host of new developments announced at FX today, including company promotions and its first original animated series, 'Chozen,' to premiere on spinoff network FXX, the company announced that comedian Russell Brand's late-night talk show, 'Brand X with Russell Brand,' would no longer move forward. The cable network will keep in business with the comedian, however, developing an original scripted comedy to better highlight his talents.
