A day after FOX made a splash at the winter 2017 Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour in Pasadena, California, it was FX Networks and FX Productions’ turn to take the stage on Thursday.

Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, presidents of original programming at FX Networks.

FX Networks heads into Sunday’s 68th Emmy Awards show with 12 Creative Arts Emmys already under its belt and a total of 56 nominations, the most in its history and the most ever for an ad-supported cable network. That level of achievement doesn’t happen overnight. At FX, not many people know this better than Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, presidents of original programming.
