FX Bets on Originals

Feb 9, 2010  •  Post A Comment

News Corp.’s FX is ditching the usual cable strategy of airing a few original series in a sea of off-network reruns, and instead making a bet on lots of original programming and top-tier theatrical movies, Multichannel News reports.

The network has 11 original scripted series launching in the next year–six shows returning for new seasons and five newcomers–and more than 100 commercial-television movie premieres set for the next two years. Among them is “Avatar,” the worldwide box-office gross record-holder

  1. FX original programming is groundbreaking. It’s fabulous and not some worn out retread like network TV programming. This year, “Damages” has me on the edge of my chair again, and I’m really sorry to see “Nip/Tuck” go.

  2. I agree Jane. ‘Rescue Me’ is also very enjoyable in it’s over-the-top machismo extremism. I agree that Nip/Tuck will be sorely missed.
