"You're the Worst" ("TV show") is a comedy series on FXX that is a love story about what happens when two toxic, self-destructive people fall in love despite themselves and attempt the impossible — a relationship. The first season aired on sister channel FX.

The series puts a dark twist on the romantic comedy genre. Narcissistic, brash, and self-destructive Jimmy Shive-Overly, played by Chris Geere ("The Spa"), thinks all relationships are doomed. Cynical, people-pleasing, and stubborn Gretchen Cutler, played by Aya Cash ("The Wolf of Wall Street"), knows that relationships aren't for her. So when they meet at a wedding, it's only natural that the two of them go home together and, despite their better judgment, begin to find themselves falling for each other.

Rounding out the cast is Desmin Borges ("The Good Wife"), who plays Edgar Quintero, Jimmy's once homeless, war veteran roommate; and Kether Donohue ("The Carrie Diaries") as Lindsay Jillian, Gretchen's best friend and former partner in crime who's now struggling with a life of domesticity.

"You're the Worst" is produced by FX Productions. The series was created by Stephen Falk ("Weeds," "Orange Is the New Black"), who wrote the pilot and serves as executive producer and showrunner. Jordan Vogt-Roberts ("Kings of Summer") directed the pilot episode.
