FX-TheBridge_DDOverlap_1069_F_adjcopy

FX has announced that it will not be renewing its series The Bridge for a third season. Producers of the drama are looking at other options.

“We thank our partners at FX for their tireless efforts in developing and launching ‘The Bridge’ with us. From its fresh, unique voice to its deep and diverse ensemble cast, this is a series that we are all very proud of,” said Shine America, which co-produced the series, in a statement. "From its fresh, unique voice to its deep and diverse ensemble cast, this is a series that we are all very proud of."

The series was based on the popular Danish-Swedish series of the same name and followed two detectives on opposite sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. Although The Bridge was a favorite with the critics, it never pulled in the audience and numbers the network was looking for. The series drew 1.5 million viewers for the season two premiere and struggled to crack 1 million viewers near the end of the second season.

Interview: Kether Donohue

kether_red

Currently airing its first season on FX, the series You're the Worst has become one of the standout hits on the network and has a very vocal and loyal fanbase. One of the reasons the series has such a rabid following is the work of actress Kether Donohue. Kether plays Lindsay, the best friend to Gretchen (Aya Cash) and the only married one in the group. Her marriage to Paul (Allan McLeod) is one of the more interesting relationships on the series. Did she marry Paul for his money or does she truly love him?

Kether has built up a solid resume of work in the theater, film and television. She's appeared on television series such as The Carrie Diaries, Perfect Couples and Hope & Faith. Her film credits include Pitch Perfect, The Bay and Collar. She's also well known for her voiceover work on series like Kurokami: The Animation and Pokemon.

Kether sat down with us to discuss her character Lindsay, the relationship between Gretchen and Lindsay and who she really thinks is the worst.

Pop Culture Principle – When you read the pilot script for You’re the Worst, what made you want to be a part of the project?

Kether Donohue –Everything about it. For one, the creator of our show Stephen Falk has an impressive body of work. I’m a huge fan of Orange is the New Black and Weeds. I love his sense of humor and also the dramatic side that he brings to every script, even if it’s a comedy. Also the fact that this is a half hour comedy, but it’s not a superficial surface comedy with service characters. There is a lot of depth to it and it has dramatic elements that could stand as a drama on its own. Lindsay and Edgar could have easily been written as sidekick characters that just make people laugh. There isn’t anything wrong with that because every comedy has the sidekick friend and that’s great, but he really gave a unique twist to the sidekick and made them dark in and off themselves.

Another thing is that I met Aya in 2010 through auditioning in New York because it’s such a small community of actors. When I saw her at the chemistry read, we were very excited to see each other. It wasn’t a surprise that we had good chemistry because we already knew each other.
