    Stephen Falk talks "You're the Worst"

    Stephen Falk talks "You're the Worst"

    Stephen Falk had just moved across the country to produce a network tv show. This was his dream. Then he got a call. "It doesn't happen, shows don't get their plugs pulled before they air, which, driving 2,000 miles at that point, I was stewing about. Like, this probably doesn't look good for me, I may never work again. So I thought, ‘well, maybe I should just talk about it, both for therapy and for career management.’ "He wrote about the experience in a tumblr post that went viral, and despite his fears, he did work again. After a stint writing on Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, he created “You’re The Worst,” for the FX network. It’s a romantic comedy of sorts, starring two very flawed people who hook up and inevitably fall in love. “So what have you heard about me?” “Nothing, just that you’re the worst.” “Says the girl who just stole a blender from a wedding.” “No, really? Oh man, I thought it was a food processor.” “Who’s the worst now?”This is Showrunners. I’m Nich Carlson, the Editor-in-Chief at INSIDER. A showrunner does a lot of things: from directing to writing to making sure there’s food on set. The showrunner ultimately controls every facet of a TV show, which is why we created Showrunners, the podcast that talks to the people making the shows we love. On this episode of Showrunners we talk with Stephen Falk about how he rebounded from having his show canceled and how he handles sex, mental health, morality, and more on “You’re the Worst.”
