FX SCHEDULES RETURN OF RESCUE ME AND PREMIERE OF LOUIE FOR JUNE 29

Penultimate Season of the Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) Nominated Rescue Me From Denis Leary and Peter Tolan Set for Tuesdays at 10 PM E/P

New Comedy Series Louie Starring Actor/Comedian Louis C.K. Follows Rescue Me Tuesdays at 11 PM E/P

LOS ANGELES, April 20, 2010 - Tuesday nights this summer are going to be a lot more entertaining as FX is pairing its Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) nominated drama Rescue Me with its new comedy series Louie beginning June 29. The sixth and penultimate season of Rescue Me will air Tuesdays at 10:00 PM ET/PT leading into the premiere season of Louie at 11:00 PM ET/PT.

"The pairing of Rescue Me and Louie this summer will create an hour and a half of the funniest and most ruthlessly honest comedy and drama about men ever seen on commercial television," said John Landgraf, President and General Manager, FX Networks. "We're thrilled by the quality of both these shows."

Rescue Me, the critically acclaimed series from Denis Leary and Peter Tolan, is currently in production of its final two seasons of the series. The upcoming sixth season, returning on June 29, features 10 episodes. Rescue Me is slated to close out its remarkable run with nine episodes for the series' seventh and final season in the summer of 2011. The final two seasons will deal with Tommy Gavin's (Denis Leary) recognition of how deeply he is in need of rescue and how time is running out on his last chances for redemption. Rescue Me stars Denis Leary, Adam Ferrara, Michael Lombardi, Steven Pasquale, Andrea Roth, John Scurti, Daniel Sunjata and Callie Thorne. The series was created by Leary and Peter Tolan, who along with Jim Serpico serve as executive producers. The show is produced by Apostle, The Cloudland Company and DreamWorks Television in association with Sony Pictures Television.

FX has scheduled 13 episodes for the premiere season of Louie, a comedy filtered through the observational humor of Louis C.K. Each episode puts a spotlight on Louis' hectic life as a successful stand-up comedian and newly single father raising his two daughters in New York. The single-camera comedy is a mix of Louis C.K.'s stand-up comedy and scripted stories. Guest starring appearances include Ricky Gervais, Pamela Adlon and Bobby Cannavale. Louis C.K. serves as executive producer, writer and director, and Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment are executive producers.

FX is the flagship general entertainment basic cable network from Fox. Launched in June of 1994, FX is carried in more than 96 million homes. The diverse schedule includes a growing roster of critically acclaimed and award-winning original series, an established film library of acquired box-office hit movies, and an impressive lineup of acquired hit series.
