Russell Brand’s TV Show Cancelled

Russell BrandRussell Brand's TV show has been cancelled. Brand X, the comedian's late night talk show on FX, will not be renewed for a third series although the actor will work on other projects for the channel, including a "scripted live-action comedy."

"I don't think we're going to bring Brand X back. I think we're going to do another show with Russell that's going to be a scripted, live-action comedy. So the relationship is going to continue," said Joh Landgraf, who was promoted to CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions this week.

Russell's new show for the channel is expected to be similar to Curb Your Enthusiasm and will be loosely based on his own life.

Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell is set to fill the gap left by Brand X and according to Mr. Landgraf, host Kamau and executive producer Chris Rock were "ready to convert to a daily show" and "we saw more potential and more upside [in Totally Biased] in the audience reaction."
