    Pamela Adlon's New Show Looks Damn Good

    Pamela Adlon for President.

    Better Things, a new show co-created by Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K, is all about the hilarious, and sometimes dark, struggles of motherhood. Get an exclusive look at the trailer below.

    The show is about Sam (Pamela Adlon), a single working mom in L.A. trying to balance her personal and professional lives.


    Adlon stars in the show, and also serves as show-runner, writer, executive producer, and director. Louis C.K. directed the pilot.

    Sam, a working actor, has three daughters — Duke, Frankie, and Max — and so does Adlon in real life. Like Louie, the show is semi-autobiographical.


    It looks, well...awesome.


    Better Things premieres Thursday, September 8 on FX.
