Under the pact, Littlefield and his Littlefield Co. banner will develop projects in cable and all distribution platforms. He moves to the studio from Legendary TV. Littlefield currently exec produces FX's Fargo as well as Hulu's upcoming take on The Handmaid's Tale.
"In our minds, Warren’s work on Fargo and The Handsmaid’s Tale is as inspired as any producer’s out there," Fox 21 president Bert Salke said Wednesday in a statement. "Between his incredible experience and his phenomenal taste in material and talent, he and his company are exactly the creative partners we look for at Fox 21. We’re thrilled to be working with him.”

This feels like a very good fit with what we do at the Littlefield Co. Joining me are Ann Johnson, Graham Littlefield and Patty Mann.”
