Louis CK's low-budget and experimental comedy Louie is finally coming to the UK, three years after it started winning awards in the US. The UK's FX network will begin showing the Emmy-winning hit in January 2013, around the same time it changes it re-brands itself as Fox. Louie will join their other new acquisitions Men at Work, The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret (which started life on Channel 4), and The Rikki Lake Show. Dexter, The Walking Dead, American Horror Story and True Blood will remain with the channel for its UK premieres.
If you're not aware, Louie is a semi-autobiographical tale of a fictionalized version of stand-up comedian Louis CK: a fortysomething single father of two, with a hilariously tragic love life.
The show's fourth season will air on FX in the US sometime in 2014, as Louis CK recently announced he's taking a year off writing more episodes. Are you excited to hear about this show making its British debut?
