Better Things premiered on FX on September 8, 2016. Sam Fox is a single, working actor with no filter trying to raise her three daughters - Max, Frankie and Duke - in Los Angeles. She is mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil, an English expatriate, who lives across the street. Sam's just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters' lives, have fun with a friend or two and also - just maybe - squeeze in some private time once in a while.
