Comedies Married and You're the Worst debut on FX in June, likely as a back-to-back hour, followed in late summer by The Partnership, the sitcom teaming Kelsey Grammer with Martin Lawrence. At FXX, season 10 of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will debut next January, paired with the launch of Tracy Morgan's new comedy, now titled Do or Die. Series in development for both channels include Hoke, The Bastard Executioner from Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, How & Why from Charlie Kaufman, Man Seeking Woman and Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.
