*Stephen Glover, writer and producer on FX’s Emmy-winning “Atlanta” and the upcoming animated series based on Marvel’s “Deadpool,” has inked an exclusive overall deal with FX Productions, the studio behind the breakout comedy series.
Under the pact, he will develop TV series for FX Networks and other outlets, according to Deadline.com.
“We can’t wait to build on the success Stephen’s achieved as a writer and producer,” said Eric Schrier, President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions along with Nick Grad. “We appreciate everything Stephen has done to make ‘Atlanta’ one of the best comedies on TV, taking an even bigger role with his brother Donald on the untitled Marvel’s ‘Deadpool’ animated series, and now creating his own projects with the same uncompromising artistry.”
Glover, the brother of “Atlanta” star Donald Glover, is also a writer and producer on the untitled “Deadpool” series coming to FXX in 2018.
He scored two WGA Awards for the first season of “Atlanta” and the show also earned him an Emmy nod for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. The comedy series, which will return to FX for Season 2 in 2018, won two Emmy Awards as well as two Golden Globes and honors from AFI, Peabody, TCA, NAACP and Critics’ Choice.
