FX Orders BREEDERS to Series

October 15, 2018 by  

FX has ordered BREEDERS, a new comedy starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard, to series. The 10-episode first season will debut in 2020.

Per FX, BREEDERS “exposes the parental-paradox that it is possible, in the very same moment, to love your child to the horizon of the universe, while being apoplectically angry enough to want to send them there. Martin Freeman stars as a caring father discovering he’s not quite the man he thought he was.”

“Martin Freeman is an incredibly versatile artist who is perfectly paired with the wonderfully talented Daisy Haggard in Breeders,” said Nick Grad, Co-Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, in a statement. “We enjoyed working with Martin on the first installment of FARGO and are delighted that he is executive producing along with Simon Blackwell and Chris Addison. We also appreciate the chance to partner with Avalon Television and Sky Original Productions to bring this new comedy series to audiences worldwide.”

“I’m delighted to be making BREEDERS with a team that can make me laugh whilst we look at some of the less-discussed truths and challenges of being a parent,” said Freeman. “I really love this project and am delighted to be working with FX and Sky.”

“I am very excited about making BREEDERS, to the point of being told to go to bed and stop showing off,” said Blackwell, who will showrun the comedy.

“It’s a treat to be cooking up stuff with my old comrade Simon Blackwell and the peerless Martin Freeman,” Addison added. “We’re very excited that FX and Sky have agreed to finance what is effectively us working through some of our own issues in the form of ten half-hour sitcom episodes. Usually you have to pay for your own therapy.”
