Legit is one of those shows that will definitely keep you laughing throughout its runtime and will end suddenly in a way that will make you angry. The brilliant FX series stars Jim Jefferies as a fictionalized version of himself as he tries to make his big break into Hollywood with the help of his neurotic best friend and roommate Steve (Dan Bakkedahl) and also Steve’s brother Billy (DJ Qualls), who has advanced-stage muscular dystrophy.
