Premieres Thursday, September 8 at 10 PM ET/PT on FX

          Better Things is a new comedy series on FX co-created by Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K., starring Adlon as “Sam Fox,” a single, working actor with no filter trying to raise her three daughters – “Max” (Mikey Madison), “Frankie” (Hannah Alligood) and “Duke” (Olivia Edward) – in Los Angeles. She is 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’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.

          The comedy is based on Pamela Adlon’s actual life as a working mother of three. Mikey Madison plays “Max,” Sam’s oldest daughter who is in full teenage bloom. Hannah Alligood plays “Frankie,” Sam’s spirited and eccentric middle daughter.
