When The League debuted on FX last year, few could have predicted it would spawn a live tour that would sell out Chicagoâ€™s House of Blues. Now in its second season, The League has transformed into a sleeper hit, with a talented cast and crew turning a show about a group of lifelong friends who play fantasy football into a sharp comedy that sport-illiterate TV viewers can love
I decided to try outÂ The League when it debuted last year, and was pleasantly surprised by the show. Now that more people are starting to catch on, it means more opportunities to write about the show. I interviewed most of the cast about The League‘s Chicago roots when they swung through town a couple nights ago. Read the piece I wrote up at The A.V. Club Chicago‘s website.
