Since Landgraf joined FX, the channel has increased the amount of its original programming five-fold. His legacy of acclaimed and award-winning programs began with Rescue Me and has expanded to include Sons of Anarchy, Justified, American Horror Story, The Americans, The Bridge, Fargo and numerous award-winning comedies, including Louie, Archer and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
The increase in programming is due in large part to Landgraf creating FX Productions. FXP produces The Strain, the hit comedy series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, Archer, Louie, Wilfred, Married and You’re the Worst, and co-produces the drama series The Americans, Sons of Anarchy, Justified, The Bridge and Tyrant.
