Years in the Industry: 31
Landgraf’s attention to detail and willingness to let artists flourish has turned FX into a storytelling powerhouse and critical darling over these many years—and the recent integration of the FX brand into Disney and Hulu has only accelerated his momentum. With three Emmys for “Fosse/Verdon” and forward-leaning shows like “Pose” and “DEVS” igniting conversation, Landgraf’s appetite for creative risk in the pursuit of excellence truly knows no bounds. And have you seen “What We Do in the Shadows”? Comedy gold. Pre-pandemic, 2020 was set to be a banner year for FX with the highly anticipated return of hits like “Atlanta” and “Fargo,” not to mention the “American Crime Story” franchise. We might have to wait a little bit longer, but Landgraf’s history as the curator of great storytelling suggests it will be worth it.
