Louie is an American comedy-drama television series on the FX network that began airing in 2010. It is written, directed, edited and produced by the show's creator, stand-up comedian Louis C.K., who stars as a fictionalized version of himself, a comedian and newly divorced father raising his two daughters in New York City. The show has a loose format atypical for television comedy series, consisting of largely unconnected storylines and segments that revolve around Louie's life, punctuated by live stand-up performances. The show has been met with critical acclaim and was included in various 2010 top-ten lists. C.K. has received several Primetime Emmy Award nominations for his acting, writing and directing and won for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards. Each season of Louie contains 13 episodes, and the seasons have been broadcast starting with the first season in 2010. The series has been renewed for a fourth season, which will premiere in May 2014.
