Comedian Jim Jefferies’ series Legit has been renewed for a second season, FX executives announced today as part of an overall announcement about the future of its comedy programming. The show, which follows the lives of Jefferies (as a touring comedian) and his best friend Steve (Dan Bakkedahl) and Steve’s disabled brother (DJ Qualls), will join Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell – renewed for a second season – as well as It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (renewed for season 10) and The League (renewed for season 6) on FX’s new channel FXX, set to launch Sept. 2. Totally Biased will also be broadcast five nights a week instead of its current every-Thursday schedule.

FX president John Landgraf explained that he plans on premiering the new channel with one late-night show (the Chris Rock-produced Totally Biased) and four comedies, one of which will come from the network’s pool of current pilots, which includes one from Charlie Kaufmann called How and Why and animated series Chozen from Danny McBride’s production company, which includes the voices of Hannibal Buress, Nick Swardson, Bobby Moynihan, Kathryn Hahn, Michael Pena and McBride. By its second year, Landgraf expects to increase FXX comedy offerings to six.

To celebrate, let’s peep a Web-only extra from Totally Biased!
