It's an all new season of IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, this October. Crude, controversial, outlandish and downright hilarious, the series airs on FX. The half-hour comedy, starring Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito, features the cast as self-centered owners of Paddy's Irish Pub in Philadelphia who will do just about anything, no matter how reprehensible, in an attempt to better their own situation.

Serious issues such as racism, abortion, underage drinking, molestation, gun control, cancer and death somehow weave their way into the cockeyed universe of "The Gang." The characters are experts on every subject but actually possess expertise in nothing at all. They often use revisionist history to bolster their self-worth, which contrasts sharply with the true reality of their lives.
Initially shot by McElhenney, Howerton and Day on a hand-held digital camera and edited on a home computer for $200; most of which went to pay for pizza and the cost of gasoline to drive to location shoots. FX picked up the show and re-shot the pilot (for a price significantly higher than that of the original $200). "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" was created by McElhenney and is executive produced by McElhenney, Day and Howerton. Michael Rotenberg and Nick Frenkel are also executive producers. The series is produced by FX Productions and distributed by Twentieth Television.
