Created by Stephen Falk (Weeds, Orange Is the New Black), the series tells the story of Gretchen (Aya Cash) and Jimmy (Chris Geere), two relationship-phobic singles who attempt a relationship after falling for one another, despite the fact that both are toxic and self-destructive. Although they might think that a relationship is something that they should want and should strive toward, Gretchen and Jimmy have a long way to go before they’re ready for the type of commitment and work that a successful romantic relationship requires. But will they learn what it means to be in a healthy union and, more importantly, will they like the feeling of being with someone?
In addition to Cash and Geere, You’re the Worst stars Desmin Borges (The Good Wife) and Kether Donohue (The Carrie Diaries).
The series premiere of You’re the Worst is set to air Thursday, July 17th at 10:30 on FX, where it will follow the series premiere of fellow couples comedy Married.
Will you be watching You’re the Worst? Do you think that Jimmy and Gretchen will tame each other, in a sense, and find that being in a healthy relationship isn’t something to be scared of? Is You’re the Worst going to be the next great FX comedy in the tradition of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Louie?
