BrandX with Russell Brand features Brand’s unvarnished and unfiltered point of view on current events, worldwide politics and popular culture. Taking on the news of the day like no one else, Brand uses his unconventional sensibility, spirituality, humor and status as a recently transplanted Englishman to get to the bottom of what the news really means. The show will be driven by Brand's interaction with a live audience as he discusses pundits, news makers and activists – many of whom he calls his friends. In addition, former Congressional policy advisor and Harvard University graduate Matt Stoller will appear on BrandX as a political, economic and historical consultant.
The half-hour show, produced weekly from Los Angeles, will bring an unmistakably irreverent attitude to FX late night. The series is produced by FX Productions in association with Branded Films and Dakota Pictures. Executive producers for BrandX with Russell Brand are Russell Brand, Troy Miller, Nik Linnen and John Noel. Miller also serves as director of the series.
