Sandra Bernhard to Guest Star on FX Comedy ‘You’re the Worst’

27 June 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sandra Bernhard has signed on to appear in FX’s new comedy “You’re the Worst.”

Bernhard will play herself in an episode titled ‘Equally Dead Inside.”  Some of her previous television credits include “Rosanne,” “The L Word,” and “Switched at Birth.”

“You’re the Worst” is an original comedy from “Weeds” writer Stephen Falk.  A dark romantic comedy, the show follows two people who haven’t been very successful with love or happiness.

Narcissistic and self-destructive, Jimmy (Chris Geere) thinks that all relationships are doomed, while the cynical but people-pleasing Gretchen (Aya Cash) knows that relationships aren’t for her.  So when the two meet at a wedding, it’s only natural that they go home together and, despite their better judgement, begin to find themselves falling for each other.

“You’re the Worst” premieres at 10:30 p.m. July 17 on FX.

Bernhard is repped by Genesis Entertainment.

We still don't know the premiere date of BBC America's "Intruders," but with the likes of Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Stamm involved, we're keeping an open spot on our DVR for whenever the announcement is made. If you're curious too, here's a new teaser with a bit of a philosophical bent.

TV On Tap: Hulu Could Save “Community,” Showtime Orders an “L Word” Documentary in Mississippi and Jane Lynch Joins Adult Swim’s Team Unicorn Pilot

29 May 2014 4:36 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

Hulu has entered discussions to revive Community for that sixth season. Discussions are preliminary, but the move would make sense. The cult comedy is one of Hulu’s top shows plus the streaming service could use a signature show to draw attention to its original series.

Max Martini has joined the guest cast of the upcoming season of Covert Affairs, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Pacific Rim alum will play a former CIA agent who mysteriously went off the grid. That reminds me of another Covert Affairs character…

Max Martini

I was planning on telling you that LeVar Burton launched a Kickstarter to raise funds for a revived Reading Rainbow as a web show. However, it only took a few hours for Burton to hit his Kickstarter goal. That puts Reading Rainbow on a list with Veronica Mars for the quickest Kickstarter projects to meet its goal.
