During a time when inclusion, cultural representation and diverse storytelling are top priorities among television networks, FX has led the charge with the Donald Glover’s Atlanta, crime drama Snowfall and Ryan Murphy’s triumvirate of hits American Horror Story, American Crime Story and the LGBTQ+ centered Pose.
Beverly Hills, CA -- The Summer 2018 Television Critics Association tour has been a good time for FX Networks, first with its successful presentations on Friday, which as always filled the Grand Ballroom at the Beverly Hilton Hotel (the home of this tour), and again on Saturday, when for the third consecutive year FX was honored with more TCA Awards than any other network or streaming service at the organization’s annual ceremony celebrating the best in television. Awards went to The Americans for Program of the Year and Outstanding Achievement in Drama, to its star Keri Russell for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama, and to The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story for Outstanding Limited Series or Movie.
Pose is pure magic. FX’s newest drama (created by Steven Canals, Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy) is just as gritty as it is glamorous. Set in New York City in the late ‘80s, every single moment in this groundbreaking series is more visceral and engaging than the last. Pose tells a three-pronged story -- one that’s been brought to life by the largest group of transgender series regulars on a scripted television show to date. In a world where the LGBT community's ball culture and Wall Street’s luxury “gotta have it all” drive were both on the rise, where everyone needed to feel superior to someone (much like today), and where people were never exactly what they seemed to be, there were three little verbs that perfectly embody the grind of day-to-day life for the show’s protagonists: Live. Work. Pose.
