FX Orders 10 Episodes of Comedy 'Breeders' Starring Martin Freeman

FX has today given a series order to the original comedy series Breeders starring Emmy winner Martin Freeman (Sherlock, Fargo) and Daisy Haggard (Episodes). The first season will feature ten episodes.

The comedy exposes the parental paradox that it is possible, in the very same moment, to love your child to the horizon of the universe, while being apoplectically angry enough to want to send them there.

Freeman stars as a caring father discovering he's not quite the man he thought he was.

Simon Blackwell and Chris Addison (Veep) created the comedy. They executive produce with Freeman, Richard Allen-Turner, Rob Aslett, David Martin, Jon Thoday and Michael Wiggs. FX Productions, Avalon Television and Sky Original Productions will produce.

"Martin Freeman is an incredibly versatile artist who is perfectly paired with the wonderfully talented Daisy Haggard in Breeders," said Nick Grad, President of Original Programming, FX Networks. "We enjoyed working with Martin on the first installment of Fargo and are delighted that he is executive producing along with Simon Blackwell and Chris Addison. We also appreciate the chance to partner with Avalon Television and Sky Original Productions to bring this new comedy series to audiences worldwide."

"I'm delighted to be making Breeders with a team that can make me laugh whilst we look at some of the less-discussed truths and challenges of being a parent," added Freeman. "I really love this project and am delighted to be working with FX and Sky."
