Brand X With Russell Brand Coming to FX

Russell Brand probably won't be dressing like Osama bin Laden this time around. 



Comedian Russell Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek) will see his new late-night show debut on the FX Network

Hailed by FX as the show that "will bring an unmistakably irreverent attitude to FX late night," Brand X With Russell Brand bows on June 28, , alongside the similarly eyebrow-raising Anger Management, featuring Charlie Sheen, and the return of Louie, the best show on TV.

But here's the FX press release on Brand X:

Brand X with Russell Brand

Season 1 Lead Story

Brand X with Russell Brand features Brand's unvarnished and unfiltered point of view on current events, worldwide politics and popular culture. Taking on the news of the day like no one else, Brand uses his unconventional sensibility, spirituality, humor and status as a recently transplanted Englishman to get to the bottom of what the news really means. The show will be driven by Brand's interaction with a live audience as he discusses pundits, news makers and activists – many of whom he calls his friends. In addition, former Congressional policy advisor and Harvard University graduate Matt Stoller will appear on Brand X as a political, economic and historical consultant.

The half-hour show, produced weekly from a Hollywood night club, will bring an unmistakably irreverent attitude to FX late night. The series is produced by FX Productions in association with Branded Films and Dakota Pictures. Executive producers for Brand X with Russell Brand are Russell Brand, Troy Miller, Nik Linnen and John Noel. Miller also serves as director of the series.

And now, a quick peek:
