Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson have signed a new multi-year overall deal with FX Productions, the studio said on Thursday. The renewal extends the partnership between FX and the “American Crime Story” duo’s banner Color Force by four years.
Under their existing deal with FX, Jacobson and Simpson executive produce Ryan Murphy’s critically acclaimed limited series “American Crime Story,” with the next installment, “Impeachment,” beginning production in 2020. They also serve as executive producers on “Pose,” which was recently renewed for Season 3 and is nominated for seven Emmys this Sunday. The pair are currently in pre-production on FX’s upcoming small-screen adaptation of the “Y: The Last Man” comic.
“Our creative collaboration with Nina and Brad has been rewarding, not just in the rich and growing catalogue of event and signature series they’ve helped produce for FX, but on a personal level as great friends and colleagues,” John Landgraf, chairman of FX Networks and FX Productions, said. “They have a natural instinct for captivating stories and the skill to bring them to life on screen. We are honored to continue our partnership for another four years.”
“Seven years ago we sat in a room with John Landgraf and his team and decided to make our television home at FX,” Jacobson and Simpson added. “We had no idea we were about to enter a time of great upheaval in the television landscape. During this time, FX’s commitment to quality and creative freedom has remained a constant. They understand and appreciate the value of non-writing producers. The trust and respect we share is something we have never taken for granted. We are thrilled to keep creating with them.”
