Landgraf

Chairman

Landgraf is a key player in Disney’s transformation by helping to expand Hulu into a pillar of Disney’s direct-to-consumer bundle with adult-themed programming. Though the company is now scrapping its FX on Hulu branding, FX continues to deliver buzzy shows that are designed for the on-demand demo (“What We Do in the Shadows,” “Reservation Dogs”) and will remain a key provider of content to the more adult-oriented streamer. The executive known for his erudite commentary on the industry has kept a lower profile since joining the Disney fold in 2019, but Landgraf’s reputation and clout with talent has not diminished. FX has maintained close ties to key A-listers such as Donald Glover even though the channel doesn’t spend at the level of Netflix and other streamers. Landgraf was also a key nurturer of trailblazing drama “Pose” through its three-season run that ended in June.
