'Louie' Officially Cancelled At FX
4 years ago
It's official: Louie is done at FX. The cable network announced today it has severed all ties with show creator Louis C.K. after the comedian admitted to past sexual misconduct towards five women between 2002 and 2005.
The move predominantly affects the overall deal FX had with C.K.'s production company, "Pig Newton", which today had its involvement removed from the four shows it currently produces with the network. The other casualty, though, is Louie, the acclaimed comedy that helped make C.K. more of a household name.
Created, written, directed, produced, and edited by Louis C.K., Louie followed a fictionalized version of the stand-up comedian and his everyday ordeals around life in New York City. Each episode included a scripted story and a mix of C.K.'s original stand-up material.
