FX Networks and 'You're the Worst' Creator Stephen Falk Support Wounded Warrior Project

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 12, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- FX Networks and the creative team behind the critically-acclaimed series "You're the Worst" are supporting Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) through sales of a song, "Something Like a Feeling," which was featured on a episode of the show. Song sales have raised thousands of dollars, which will support injured warriors served through WWP programs.

FX Networks and the creative minds behind "You're the Worst" are supporting Wounded Warrior Project through a song featured in the show.

"You're the Worst" follows the day-to-day lives of four friends as they navigate their imperfect lives. The show has gained widespread praise for its raw depictions of relationships and coping with mental health struggles. One of the main characters in the show is an Iraq war veteran named "Edgar Quintero" who struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In an episode titled "Twenty-Two," which not only featured the song from the campaign but was critically acclaimed as one of the show's best episodes, this struggle came to a climax when he came face to face with the difficult path forward in his recovery from the invisible wounds of war.

"The creative team at 'You're the Worst' has always thought that veterans' issues are tragically overlooked in popular culture," said series creator Stephen Falk. "From day one, it's been our mission with our character Edgar to shine that light at every opportunity. Last season, we did an episode that dealt with the character's particular struggles with PTSD – and in general, the difficulties some veterans have in acclimating to civilian life. Since our show is a comedy, the song 'Something like a Feeling' was consistent with our dedication to portraying those struggles with the full array of tone and emotions that go along with any person's struggle just to get by."

Exposure to traumatic combat and operational experiences affects service members and veterans spiritually, psychologically, biologically, and socially. The anxiety and sense of isolation from these experiences are among the most significant struggles wounded warriors deal with after serving their country.

By connecting with mental health programs and peer support services, veterans can be empowered to live full, independent lives on their terms. WWP programs assist injured veterans with mental health, physical health and wellness, career and benefits counseling, and connecting warriors with one another.
