Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K.’s ‘Better Things’ Releases First Trailer
It’s not the type of show to bring any flashy presentation to Comic-Con, but we’re still excited for a look at Louie star Pamela Adlon’s FX Better Things, if not on the strength of its first teasers, than by C.K.’s involvement. The first full trailer makes a strong case as well, debuting well before the September premiere.
Set for a September 8 premiere with Donald Glover’s Atlanta, Better Things also sees Adlon serving as an executive producer alongside Louis C.K. Included in the cast are Mikey Madison, Riley Watson, and Olivia Edward as her three daughters.
So reads the official synopsis:
Better Things centers on Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters, Max (Mikey Madison), Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. She’s mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate, who lives across the street. Sam is flawed and fierce with her love for her daughters, and her own mother, as well. Sometimes, heaping the love on when she feels guilty. Sam’s just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two and also — just maybe — squeeze in some private time once in a while. Adlon serves as Executive Producer alongside Louis C.K., Blair Breard, Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment.
There’s a breadth of new teasers below as well, but stay tuned for more on FX’s Better Things.
