TCA: FX's Landgraf -- ‘We Know How HBO Feels Now'


TCA: Complete Coverage of the Summer Press Tour

As FX faces the task of replacing landmark series The Shield and Nip/Tuck and several basic cable competitors have found their own success with original dramas, FX Networks president-general manager John Landgraf said, "We know how HBO feels now."

Speaking during an executive Q&A at FX's portion of the TCA press tour Aug. 7, Landgraf said the network is in production on more pilots than ever in the basic-cable network's history, with three drama pilots and three comedy pilots underway.

"There's a lot of activity at the network right now," he said. "You will be seeing announcements in the next 10 days to a month about these other projects we've had in development."
