Mediaweek TV: FX’s The League

With football in full swing, it’s no surprise that cable’s FX channel is launching its new comedy The League, about a group of guys who are obsessed with playing fantasy football.
Premiering Oct. 29 at 10:30 p.m., the single-camera comedy looks at a group of suburban thirtysomethings—some single, some married—and their strong (if at times, raunchy) bonds of friendship, as each tries try to take home their fantasy football trophy for the season.
In an exclusive video report, Mediaweek correspondent Alan Frutkin talks with the husband-and-wife team of Jeff Schaffer (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Jackie Marcus Schaffer (Disturbia) who created the series.
