‘BrandX’ & ‘Totally Biased’ Gets 13 Episode Pick-up

Comedians Russell Brand and Kamau Bell have received good news from the FX Network. The late night hosts have both received a 13 episode pick-up for their shows BrandX and Totally Biased. Nick Grad, FX’s Executive Vice President of Original Programming, broke the news.

“We’re proud to have two of the most strikingly original and funny voices in late night as part of the FX comedy lineup. Russell’s irrepressible energy and unique style have made BrandX a daring show where anything can happen. Kamau is one of the sharpest, smartest and funniest comedians in the business. The New York Times called him ‘the most promising talent in political comedy in many years,’ and we couldn’t agree more.”

Russell Brand’s ‘BrandX’ will showcase a one-hour special episode on November 29th at 11:30pm ET/PT with plans to return February 7th in the same time slot featuring a full hour format with the comedian. The late night show comes from Executive Producers Troy Miller, Nik Linnen, John Noel, and Brand.

Meanwhile, ‘Totally Biased’, is slated to debut its last installment as well on November 29th at 11:00pm ET/PT and will return with all new episodes on January 17th. Star of the series, Kamau Bell is also an Executive Producer alongside Chris Rock, Chuck Sklar and Keri Smith Esguia.
