Russell Brand plotting comedy show based on his life

Russell Brand has been given some good news after the axe of his talk show - the British comic is to star in a new comedy series based on his own life.

Network bosses at FX are pulling the plug on his late-night program Brand X, but the funnyman is currently developing a live-action show, which he will star in and produce.

Confirming reports, FX CEO John Landgraf explains, "It'll be a live action show that is loosely based on his life like Curb Your Enthusiasm is loosely based on Larry David's life."

Seinfeld co-creator Larry David played a fictionalised version of himself in hit TV comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm.
