Shelter Island resident, comedian and auteur Louis C.K. is back with a trailer for his new FX sitcom Better Things.

Co-created and co-written by C.K., Better Things stars C.K.’s frequent collaborator Pamela Adlon, who created and wrote the show alongside the comedian, taking material from her own experiences as a single mother.

Adlon will be playing an aspiring actress and single mother of three daughters, living in Los Angeles and trying to establish herself in show business as she struggles to juggle her family life.

So far, 2016 has been a busy year for C.K. In the absence of C.K.’s popular sitcom Louie, which was put on indefinite hiatus, the comedian has filled the void with show after show, branching out into new genres and collaborations.

Earlier this year, C.K. quietly premiered his less-than-comedic show Horace and Pete via his website. At the same time, he also released his latest FX show Baskets, which he co-created with actor and comedian Zach Galifianakis, who stars as the titular character.

Most recently, C.K. supplied his voice for the computer-animated children’s movie The Secret Life of Pets, which he starred in alongside Albert Brooks (The Simpsons, Taxi Driver), who are now both co-creating a new cartoon for FX which is still in the very early stages.

C.K. is currently in the thick of his tour, spanning across the country, Europe and Israel.

Better Things premiers September 8 on FX. For tour dates of C.K.’s tour, check out
