An impressive creative force who’s as enviable as he is humble, Rich now has Man Seeking Woman, a surreal comedy about dating that premieres tonight on FXX. Talking with SPINOFF ONLINE, Rich goes into detail about the creation of the series, the journey of protagonist Josh (played by Jay Baruchel), and what his ambitions are for the character. Simon Rich: You know, I just feel incredibly lucky and grateful that I get to do this for a living in any capacity. What value does criticism have to you as an artist when you’re working in comedy, which is so subjective? Criticism and in particular, rejection, has been pretty intertwined with my writing career from the very beginning.
Obviously, doing a television show comes with the risk that someone is going to control whether you tell a full story. You have so many incredible weapons when making a television show, especially when you’re making it for a network like FXX. You also have access to incredible directors which heighten the material, and then you get to use music and monsters and special effects. You get to control how many pages you want something to be and you get to go inside character’s minds and write about their thoughts.
Is Josh’s struggle to pull away from his relationship with Maggie meant to be a lasting part of the show, or are we going to see that relationship evolve over time? Beyond just the first season — because I imagine that you want to make this for more than just one season — is there a way to pivot from a single guy seeking love to someone who is in a relationship down the road? I think like all dating sitcoms, we have so much material to mine from singledom before we go down that path, you know? FX once again is demonstrating its signature patience when it comes to new series, handing out a 10-episode second season order to freshman comedy Man Seeking Woman for a 2016 premiere.


A sweet and absurd look at the surreal life-and-death stakes of dating, Man Seeking Woman stars  Baruchel as Josh Greenberg, a naive romantic on a desperate quest for love.
Show Summary: A sweet and surreal look at the life-and-death stakes of dating, Man Seeking Woman follows naive twenty-something “Josh Greenberg” (Jay Baruchel, How to Train Your Dragon) on his unrelenting quest for love. A former president of The Harvard Lampoon, the 30-year-old was the youngest writer ever hired at Saturday Night Live, where he worked for four seasons, and the author of four short story collections, two novels and countless magazine articles. He also addresses how he deals with praise and criticism, his love of The Kids in the Hall, the show’s Japanese Penis Monster and practical effects, and writing Adolf Hitler with Bill Hader in mind. By the time I started to sell stories to places like MAD Magazine and The New Yorker towards the end of college, I’d been rejected hundreds of times. So as a writer and as a producer, you just get to have so many extra tools in your tool box.
There’s obviously certain incredible advantages to writing prose, but writing for the screen is pretty amazing too in its own way. Or are you dedicated to keeping this about the pursuit of love rather than the realization of it?
They need to follow their parent channel and re-arrange airing order and constantly change the air date until they find one that works, and if after 3 changes it doesn’t, it should have been canceled. The Hollywood Sign is a trademark and intellectual property of Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. Josh soldiers through one-night stands, painful break-ups, a blind date with a troll, time travel, sex aliens, many deaths and a Japanese penis monster named “Tanaka” on his fantastical journey to find love.
To say that he’s used his time on Earth more efficiently than most people his age is an understatement. I started off as a magazine writer and all through college I wrote short stories and comedy pieces for magazines.


So it really just helped me build some calluses and take it a little less personally and kind of not let it get me down. I haven’t had this much creative leeway in my entire life outside of the pages of a book or a magazine.
Season 1 is very much about trying to get over his ex and meet somebody new, and the character is kind of taking baby steps into the world of dating when we start.
To take a single character, introduce him to a new character, and then actually see that relationship and play it out on screen. Additionally, Man Seeking Woman, the first original series to launch on FXX, garnered strong reviews at its launch.
Man Seeking Woman was created by Rich based on his book of short stories, The Last Girlfriend On Earth.
I mean these ratings are even worse than Married, You’re The Worst and Partners last summer. Rich serves as showrunner and executive producer along with Jonathan Krisel, Lorne Michaels and Broadway Video’s Andrew Singer. But my earliest memories of trying to be a professional writer are sending stories off to get rejected by magazines.
