Video: A Few Minutes With... "The League" Creators Jackie & Jeff Schaffer
By Jim Halterman (TFC)

Every interview is filled with its own challenges based on the project and the person (or people) you're talking with but sitting down with the cast and creators of FX's riotous comedy "The League" is filled different challenges. How do you keeping the Q&A session on track when talking to comedians who are used to riffing on every subject imaginable? And how do you, the seasoned professional, not be overcome with laughter while filming the interview?

During this summer's Television Critics Association Press Tour, our Jim Halterman did his best to keep it together while he talked to creators Jackie & Jeff Schaffer about the delay in starting the season due to the NFL's own drama and having big name guest stars like Seth Rogen and Will Forte appear. With cast members Stephen Rannazzisi (Kevin), Katie Aselton (Jenny) and Mark Duplass (Pete), the conversation went to the theme of vengeance that pops up during this new season. And, finally, Paul Scheer (Andre), Jon LaJoie (Taco) and Nick Kroll (Ruxin) spent time pontificating on being mistaken for the cast of "Glee" and what would happen if Britney Spears showed up on their show.

And here's the complete index of all the interviews from the event:

A Few Minutes With... Creators Jackie & Jeff Schaffer
A Few Minutes With... Co-Stars Paul Scheer, Jon LaJoie & Nick Kroll
A Few Minutes With... Co-Stars Stephen Rannazzisi, Katie Aselton & Mark Duplass

"The League" airs Thursdays at 10:30/9:30c on FX.
