Not everything works, but the previewed episodes again establish this as a series with a singular vision, elevating the indignities of dating to an epic level.Comparisons to early Woody Allen remain inevitable, especially with the way Jay Baruchel plays the perpetually flustered, inordinately imaginative Josh, who, in the first season, was the only one in his circle bothered by the fact that his ex-girlfriend was dating Hitler (yes, Hitler).FXX is also the exclusive cable home to The Simpsons, the longest-running comedy in TV history. FXX and its sister channels FX and FXM comprise FX Networks, a business unit of 21 Century Fox.
FXX gave us the freedom to make the show we love and they let us build some truly disgusting monsters.
I’m so grateful to John Landgraf and his team for believing in us and I can’t wait to get back to work.” A sweet and absurd look at the surreal life-and-death stakes of dating, Man Seeking Woman stars Jay Baruchel as “Josh Greenberg,” a naive romantic on a desperate quest for love.
Geared towards a young adult audience, the schedule features original series, movies, and acquired series.
The channel is anchored by the acclaimed hit comedies It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, You’re the Worst, Man Seeking Woman and the upcoming The Untitled Tracy Morgan Project (TBD).
The series returns paired with “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” another show that has always been proudly juvenile.
“Man” is too flimsy a construct to rival that show’s longevity or provoke true love, but in terms of seeking a connection with a sitcom, there’s plenty here to like.Still, FXX has picked up the series for another season of 10 episodes for 2016, likely hoping that the numbers will improve at some point. Updated with the official press release: FXX Picks Up Second Season of the Show Rolling Stone Calls TV’s Best New Comedy “MAN SEEKING WOMAN” Half-Hour Comedy Series Starring Jay Baruchel, Created by Simon Rich, from Executive Producers Rich, Jonathan Krisel, Lorne Michaels and Broadway Video’s Andrew Singer Receives 10-Episode Order for Season Two LOS ANGELES, March 3, 2015 – Man Seeking Woman, the first original comedy series to debut on FXX, has been picked up for a second season, it was announced today by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions.The half-hour comedy series from Showrunner and Executive Producer Simon Rich, starring Jay Baruchel and produced by FX Productions, will return with 10 new episodes in 2016.Even FX’s comedies have a tendency to be immersed in darkness, so the sense of whimsy built into this show is welcome.And like Seth Mac Farlane’s animated fare, the rapid-fire nature of gags is such that if one falls flat – such as Josh’s unfortunately close relationship with a car (don’t ask) – be patient, another will be along momentarily.Season 1 of Man Seeking Woman will feature three more episodes.
