Stephen Glover has signed an overall deal with FX Productions.
Glover, the younger brother of Donald Glover, is an award-winning writer and producer on the breakout hit comedy series Atlanta and on the upcoming Untitled Marvel’s Deadpool animated series. Now, he will develop television series for FX Networks and other outlets.
“We can’t wait to build on the success Stephen’s achieved as a writer and producer. 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,” said Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions in a statement.
Glover won two WGA Awards for the first season of Atlanta (Comedy Series, New Comedy) and was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for Atlanta. Atlanta, which will return to FX in 2018, additionally won two Emmy Awards as well as two Golden Globe Awards and AFI, Peabody, TCA, NAACP and Critics’ Choice Award.
