Ryan Murphy‘s former protege and current partner is here to stay
“American Horror Story” and “Scream Queens” co-creator Brad Falchuk has closed a new multiyear deal with 20th Century Fox Television.
In addition to those two renewed shows, the agreement will keep him on the FX anthology series “American Crime Story” while enabling him to create new network and cable projects for the studio.
“Brad has been an excellent partner to our studio,” commented Fox Television Group Chairman and CEO Dana Walden. “He is a hugely talented writer and director who has been integral to the creation of two of the most iconic and successful shows in recent television history. We love working with him and are very happy that he will continue to call Twentieth Century Fox Television his professional home.”
Falchuk began as a writer on Ryan Murphy‘s “Nip/Tuck,” eventually rising to an executive producer on the series. The two then created “Glee” together and they remain partners on most projects.
The duo’s “People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” recently found 12 million total viewers with its FX premiere. That gaudy number comes courtesy of three-day delayed viewing.
Repped by WME and attorney Michael Gendler, Falchuk has been recognized for his achievements with multiple Emmy, WGA and PGA Award nominations.
