From Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions

LOS ANGELES, January 14, 2022 – The team from the award-winning drama series Justified is reuniting for the FX limited series Justified: City Primeval, with Timothy Olyphant reprising his iconic role as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in a new tale inspired by City Primeval: High Noon in Detroit, the epic crime novel by the late, great Elmore Leonard, it was announced today by Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment.

Dave Andron and Michael Dinner are Showrunners, Writers and Executive Producers, with Dinner directing. Olyphant is the star and Executive Producer. Graham Yost, Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly are Executive Producers, alongside Peter Leonard, Taylor Elmore (Writer), Chris Provenzano (Writer). Walter Mosley is Consulting Producer, and V.J. Boyd, Eisa Davis and Ingrid Escajeda are Writers. The series will be produced by Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions.

“Justified was one of the most critically acclaimed shows of the past decade and an adaption of Elmore Leonard’s work that was so colorfully brought to life by Timothy Olyphant as Raylan Givens, Graham Yost and the entire team of producers, writers, directors and cast,” said Schrier. “To have this group come together again with Tim as Raylan in a new and different Elmore Leonard story is thrilling. I want to thank our showrunners Dave and Michael, and their fellow executive producers Tim, Graham, Sarah and Carl, the Elmore Leonard estate as well as our partners at Sony Pictures Television, for making this possible.”

“When Justified concluded, the love and affection for this exceptional series only grew and left audiences craving more Raylan Givens. The iconic Elmore Leonard was one of the premier authors of our time and no one has quite captured his tone and authenticity as well as this Justified team,” said President of Sony Pictures Television Studios, Jeff Frost and Co-President, Jason Clodfelter. “We look forward to experiencing the magic again of Tim, Graham, Dave, Michael and our preeminent executive producer team. We are so thrilled to be continuing this remarkable ride with our partners at FX.”

Having left the hollers of Kentucky eight years ago, Raylan Givens now lives in Miami, a walking anachronism balancing his life as a U.S. Marshal and part-time father of a 14-year-old girl. His hair is grayer, his hat is dirtier, and the road in front of him is suddenly a lot shorter than the road behind.

A chance encounter on a desolate Florida highway sends him to Detroit. There he crosses paths with Clement Mansell, aka The Oklahoma Wildman, a violent, sociopathic desperado who’s already slipped through the fingers of Detroit’s finest once and aims to do so again. Mansell’s lawyer, formidable Motor City native Carolyn Wilder, has every intention of representing her client, even as she finds herself caught in between cop and criminal, with her own game afoot as well. These three characters set out on a collision course in classic Elmore Leonard fashion, to see who makes it out of the City Primeval alive.

As a drama series, Justified ran for six seasons on FX from 2010-2015 and was nominated for eight Emmy Awards, received two Emmy Awards wins among numerous other awards, including a Peabody Award and AFI Television Program of the Year Award.

Justified was based on the Elmore Leonard novella, Fire in the Hole, and Leonard consulted with the producers and participated on panels for the show up until his death in August of 2013.

Over its six-year run, Justified posted a score of 97% on Rotten Tomatoes with and audience score of 95%, and received a Must Watch mark and Universal Acclaim score of 86 on Metacritic to go with a user score of 9.4 out of 10.

LOS ANGELES, January 10, 2022 – FX’s adaptation of the profoundly influential novel Kindred has been ordered to series, it was announced today by Nick Grad, President, Original Programming FX. The eight-episode series will be produced by FX Productions.

Kindred is based on MacArthur Fellow and Hugo Award winner Octavia E. Butler’s enormously popular and influential novel, which has been hailed as a visionary work of science fiction since it was first published more than four decades ago in 1979.

Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (Watchmen, An Octoroon) will serve as showrunner and writer on the television adaptation of this classic work and executive produce along with Courtney Lee-Mitchell (The Reluctant Fundamentalist), Darren Aronofsky (mother!, The Fountain) and Ari Handel (One Strange Rock, Noah) of Protozoa Pictures, Joe Weisberg (The Americans), Joel Fields (Fosse/Verdon, The Americans), Ernestine Walker and Merrilee Heifetz.

But, before she can get settled into her new home, she finds herself being violently pulled back and forth in time to a nineteenth-century plantation with which she and her family are surprisingly and intimately linked. An interracial romance threads through her past and present, and the clock is ticking as she struggles to confront the secrets she never knew ran through her blood, in this genre-breaking exploration of the ties that bind.

FX Sets Premiere Date for the Acclaimed Drama Series

“Snowfall”

Ten-Episode Fifth Season of Snowfall Debuts February 23rd

Season 4 of Snowfall was FX’s Most-Watched Series in 2021

LOS ANGELES, December 21, 2021 – FX’s acclaimed, hit drama Snowfall will premiere its fifth season on Wednesday, February 23rd at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX and stream on Hulu the next day. The premiere will include the first two episodes. FX will run a new teaser trailer in ESPN and ABC’s slate of NBA games on Christmas Day.

Snowfall’s fourth season reigns as FX’s most-watched series of 2021 inclusive of all forms of linear and streaming viewing. The first four seasons of Snowfall are available to stream on Hulu.

“Snowfall is enjoying a justly deserved burst of success with season 4, and we’re excited to follow it up with another explosive season early next year,” said Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment. “Our thanks to everyone on the creative team, the remarkable cast and crew who make Snowfall one of the best series on television.”

Set in the summer of 1986, Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and his entire family are rich beyond their wildest dreams, on the verge of having everything they’ve ever wanted… right as the ground begins to fall out from under their feet. The sudden and tragic death of basketball star Len Bias makes the rock cocaine epidemic front-page news, the target of both Democrat and Republican lawmakers. Law enforcement is on a warpath and the militarization of the L.A.P.D. continues as police and politicians decide the only way to deal with this growing scourge is through force – and the creation of the new C.R.A.S.H. (Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums) units. The streets of South Central Los Angeles have never been so dangerous as the Saint family navigates the police, the warring gangs and the CIA.

Amidst all of this, the biggest threat the family faces are each other as they try not to let greed, resentment and ego tear them all apart.

Created by John Singleton & Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, Snowfall is executive produced by Singleton, Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Amadio, Michael London, Trevor Engelson, Leonard Chang, Walter Mosley and Julie DeJoie. Damson Idris also serves as Producer. Andron serves as showrunner. Snowfall is produced by FX Productions.

In its fifth and final chapter, Better Things focuses on ‘the road ahead’ for its unconventional, unfiltered heroine, Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), so devoted to her life as a working actor and single mother of three that she’s left little time for that one elusive thing: herself. As she navigates three daughters, each coming of age; the challenges of her chosen career; and her mother’s increasing signs of aging (as well as her own) – Sam embraces each moment, and each member of her family, with a fierce love, raw honesty and biting humor. As each of the Fox women come of age into the next phase of their life, they are inspired to reevaluate themselves, learn from the past and find their own direction.

Pamela Adlon stars in Better Things for which she is also an executive producer, writer and the sole director for season five. In addition to Adlon, the series stars Mikey Madison, Hannah Riley, Olivia Edward and Celia Imrie. Better Things is produced by FX Productions.

The final season will also feature guest stars Lena Waithe, Ron Cephas Jones, Danny Trejo, Marty Krofft, Clive Russell, Casey Wilson, Rainbow Sun Francks, Angela Kinsey, Kevin Michael Richardson, Nelson Lee, Lennon Parham and Usman Ally, as well as the return of Diedrich Bader, Kevin Pollak, Rosalind Chao, Judy Gold, Cree Summer, Alysia Reiner, Greg Cromer, Dominic Burgess, Matthew Glave and Mario Cantone.

Better Things was honored with a Peabody Award and Pamela Adlon has been nominated twice for the Emmy(R) Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Adlon was also nominated for a Golden Globe(R) Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

FX Short Films Nash Edgerton’s Short Film Trilogy “Spider, Bear and Shark” Released Today on Hulu

Trilogy of Films from Nash Edgerton of FX’s Mr Inbetween

Shark, the Latest Installment in the Trilogy Which Stars Rose Byrne, Has Its Worldwide Premiere on Hulu

LOS ANGELES, December 9, 2021 – FX today debuted three short films on Hulu – Spider (2007), Bear (2011) and Shark (2021) – a trilogy of wickedly dark comedy shorts is from Blue-Tongue Films and Nash Edgerton, executive producer and director of FX’s acclaimed Mr Inbetween.

Shark follows the adventures of “Jack” (Edgerton), a well-meaning but misunderstood prankster. After his two previous relationships ended in calamity, it seems Jack has met his match in “Sofie” (Rose Bryne). Alas, the couple’s quest to outdo each other looks set to lead to the most outrageous calamity of all.

Shark recently premiered at Toronto International Film Festival 2021 and is currently in consideration for Best Live-Action Short Film at the 2022 Oscars(R). FX also released the trailer for Shark, which can be viewed here.

The trilogy is co-written by Nash Edgerton and David Michôd (The King, Rover, Animal Kingdom, Catch 22), and directed by Edgerton who also served as executive producer on the trilogy along with Lucia Nicolai and Marcello Paolillo of the independent film production company Art Of Panic Panic (Tigers, The Man Who Stole Banksy). Michele Bennett (Chopper, Mr Inbetween, Judy & Punch) also served as a producer on Shark.

“I couldn’t be more excited to have Spider, Bear and Shark all play together on Hulu,” said Edgerton. “I love that audiences will get to see ‘Jack’ grow older but not really grow up as he pranks his way through his attempts at relationships.”

François Morisset, founder and managing director of the Paris- and Berlin-based sales agency Salaud Morisset (Skin, The Letter Room), is spearheading the Academy Awards campaign for Shark.

“Shark is a refreshingly fun short,” said Morisset. “Nash has masterfully combined the playfulness of the horror genre with the warmth of comedy; add to this the film’s top-class production value and its feature cast and it will surely thrill viewers all over the world.”
