Trivia

In November 2017, after Louis C.K. confirmed the sexual misconduct allegations against him were true, FX canceled their overall deal with C.K. and his production company, Pig Newton. C.K. will have no involvement in future seasons of the series. That month, Adlon fired 3 Arts manager Dave Becky as her manager. Therefore, Pig Newton and 3 Arts will no longer co-produce the series going forward after they were both removed from the conclusion of the Season 2 finale. See more »

Hilarious. Raw and yet poignant. Best series on TV
8 October 2016 | by anwahs13See all my reviews

This show is one of the best series I've ever watched. I am a huge Louis C.K. and Pamela Aldon fan. It's extremely easy to relate to, real and laugh out loud hilarious about REAL people and the struggles of being a single parent or parent for that matter. It also does a great job of showing the struggles of being an aging actress in an industry that favours youth and beauty over talent. I'm amazed to read other reviews stating that it's not funny? Someone said it was for Feminists. Absolutely, not true. While I would call her a Feminist, she bashes those who have it coming, not necessarily only men. She praises good men and gives the bad ones an earful, so possibly it touched a nerve in some people. Make up your own mind by giving it a watch :)
