Pamela Adlon on picking up the pieces of Better Things after Louis CK's exit: "Change is extraordinarily good"
Adlon recalled the day in November 2017 when her Better Things co-creator and longtime collaborator Louis CK was fired for sexual misconduct. “All of a sudden, he’s gone, my show is dangling from a precipice,” she tells Vanity Fair. “It was so huge. And it was so devastating.” Adlon not only had to part ways with CK, but she also dropped the manager they shared as she began the daunting task of creating a writers' room for Season 3. “I’ve never been in a writers’ room, let alone run a writers’ room,” she says. “Sitting down, meeting writers, reading their stuff—how do you do this? Is this person going to get along with this person? It’s like making a table at a f*cking Bar Mitzvah.”
