The Hollywood Reporter Unveils Comedy Class of 2013
Ask any comedian where he’d like to take his fare, and the answer is almost always the same: FX. The network, led by president John Landgraf, has long championed distinct and often niche voices, be they Louis C.K.’s (Louie) or W. Kamau Bell’s (Totally Biased).
“Younger generations don’t like to feel the hand of the manufacturer in the products they consume,” says Landgraf of a strategy that doesn’t soften the edges.
The result: cult hits such as The League, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Archer, which has seen its demo audience grow 36 percent in season four. In the fall, Landgraf will launch a second network, FXX, devoted to more comedy.
