Russell Brand's TV show 'Brand X' will not be renewed for a third season.
Russell Brand's TV show has been cancelled.
'Brand X', the comedian's late night talk show on FX, will not be renewed for a third series although the actor will work on other projects for the channel, including a ''scripted live-action comedy''.
Joh Landgraf - who was promoted to CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions this week - said: ''I don't think we're going to bring 'Brand X' back.
''I think we're going to do another show with Russell that's going to be a scripted, live-action comedy. So the relationship is going to continue.''
Russell's new show for the channel is expected to be similar to 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' and will be loosely based on his own life.
'Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell' is set to fill the gap left by 'Brand X' and according to Mr. Landgraf, host Kamau and executive producer Chris Rock were ''ready to convert to a daily show'' and ''we saw more potential and more upside [in 'Totally Biased'] in the audience reaction''.
The CEO also admitted ratings for Charlie Sheen's 'Anger Management' ''are less than we'd like them to be'' but insisted airing the show on sister broadcast network Fox has given a boost to the series.
He said: ''That was really good for the show, it had a really good performance we're very hopeful that we will see some of those numbers migrate to the show [on FX].''
