Now heading to Netflix in a $300 million deal announced in February, TV vet Murphy himself has called Pose “the highlight of my career.”
“As television critics have universally acknowledged, there is simply nothing like Pose on TV, so effortlessly excelling on every creative level and earning a place in television history for its infectiously inclusive spirit,” the FX boss added. “We are honored to partner with our producers Ryan, Brad Falchuk, Steven Canals, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Steven Canals, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh, and the incredible cast and crew to continue this groundbreaking journey that is Pose.”
Pose‘s second set of moves, so to speak, will hit the small screen in 2019, the cabler stated.
Co-created by Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, the house ball set series is EP’d by Murphy, Falchuk, Jacobson, Simpson, Woodall and Marsh.
