What will FX’s “The League” do if the NFL lockout continues into fall and impacts the 2011 season?

As the NFL lockout continues into the spring, what will its impact be on the third season of FX sitcom The League, which is set to return this fall with or without football?

The whole series revolves around a group of guys and a woman who compete in fantasy football. So I asked two of The League's stars, the husband-wife team of Mark Duplass and Katie Aselton, on the red carpet for The Comedy Awards. Duplass' film, Cyrus, received four nominations for The Comedy Awards, which airs April 10, 2011 on Comedy Central and several other Viacom networks.


In related news, the couple's comedic co-stars from The League – Paul Scheer, Nick Kroll, Jon Lajoie and Stephen Rannazzisi — all will be performing stand-up live at Bonnaroo this June in Manchester, Tenn.
