FX has unveiled premiere dates for Season 6 of its anthology series American Horror Story along with a pair of freshman comedies. The return of AHS, which last week got a teaser logo but has yet to reveal the title or theme for next season, will bow Wednesday, September 14, preceded by Atlanta on Tuesday, September 6, and Better Things on Thursday, September 8. All will air at 10 PM.
Atlanta is the story of two cousins working through the Southern capital’s music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families. Earn Marks (Donald Glover) is a young manager trying to get his cousin’s career off the ground. Alfred Marks (Brian Tyree Henry) is a new hot rapper trying to understand the line between real life and street life. Lakeith Lee Stanfield, Zazie Beetz co-star. Glover also executive produces along with Paul Simms and Dianne McGunigle of MGMT Entertainment. Atlanta is produced by FX Productions.
Co-created by Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K., Better Things centers on Sam Fox (Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters (Mikey Madison, Hannah Alligood, Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. She also watches out for her English expat mother (Celia Imrie), 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. Adlon is executive producer alongside Louis C.K., Blair Breard, Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment. Better Things is produced by C.K.’s production company Pig Newton for FX Productions.
