For FX, ending its relationship with C.K. meant that the studio would cancel the overall deal it had with the comedian and his production company Pig Newton, and he’d be removed as an executive producer on the four shows he was producing with the network — Baskets, One Mississippi, The Cops and Better Things. On the latter, C.K. was heavily involved, and is credited with co-writing every episode of the second season with co-creator Pamela Adlon. On stage, Landgraf insisted that Better Things is “Pamela’s show” and that he’s “optimistic and confident” about the upcoming third season. “Louis was her co-writer, so she’s going to have to write them all herself or find another co-writer — but she’s the creative engine of that show and that won’t change,” he said.
