FX won’t renew BrandX with Russell Brand but will remain in business with the comedian, who is developing a pilot for the cable net.

Brand X ran for three seasons – or 26 episodes – on FX as a weekly talk show. The season finale aired May 2.

Instead, FX is working with Brand on a scripted live-action comedy that’s loosely based on the comedian’s life – like how Curb Your Enthusiasm is based on Larry David, the network said.
