United States




Landgraf solidified FX’s reputation as a basic-cable go-to destination for forward-thinking original series by giving showrunners creative freedom to do what they do best. Among the shows he has championed as head of the cabler are “Atlanta,” “Louie,” “The Americans” “Archer” and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” as well as the hit anthology shows “American Horror Story” and “Fargo.” Landgraf — who will move with FX to the Walt Disney Co. when the conglom’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox closes — is well known for his cerebral, data-driven exchanges with reporters twice a year at the Television Critics Association press tour. His career breakthrough came in NBC programming under Warren Littlefield, and he later founded Jersey Television with Danny DeVito.
