FX, on Tuesday, announced that an ambitious six-part documentary on six decades of the fight for LGBTQ rights in the U.S. — told by six different LGBTQ voices — is in the works.
“Pride” is among a slate of new non-fiction programing recently unveiled by the award winning network.
With its airdate still to be determined, "Pride" is a six-part documentary series hailing from Christine Vachon’s Killer Films and Refinery 29, chronicling the fight for LGBTQ civil rights in America, as seen through the lens of our national history, and the biggest pop culture and political events. Each part directed by a different renowned LGBTQ director, "Pride" is about all of us, and the awesome, heartbreaking, and heroic story surrounding the LGBTQ fight for freedom over the last 60 years in America. "Pride" is executive produced by Christine Vachon and Sydney Foos of Killer Films, Refinery29/Amy Emmerich, Stone Roberts and Alex Stapleton.
“FX has long sought to give artists a platform to showcase their individual, uncompromising vision and its new docuseries and features are an opportunity to extend that ambition in our collaboration with non-fiction talent,” said Nick Grad, President, Original Programming. “It’s been tremendously rewarding to partner with The New York Times and Hulu on The Weekly, which has excelled creatively and is hitting series-high ratings. Under the guidance of FX’s Jonathan Frank and J.J. Klein, we are now honored to partner with these new teams to create docuseries and features that will join FX’s legacy of fearless and groundbreaking programming.”
FX is home to several queer-favorite series by prolific out-producer Ryan Murphy, including “Pose,” “American Horror Story” and “Feud.”
