Be on the lookout for more scripted content from Steven Canals.
Deadline reported Tuesday that the Pose creator inked an overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV.
“For this Bronx-bred storyteller, I’m thrilled by this new chapter,” Canals said in a statement to Deadline. “Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined having supportive co-conspirators like Dana Walden, Craig Hunegs, Carolyn Cassidy, Howard Kurtzman and their teams. I’m grateful to be partnering with 20th to continue creating original content that centers diverse voices and moves the industry’s needle toward more inclusion and equity.”
The screenwriter and UCLA alum co-created Pose alongside Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Starring Mj Rodriguez, Billy Porter, and Indya Moore, Pose features the largest number of trans actors in series-regular roles ever for a scripted series. The series–which explores the underground ball scene of the 1980s and 1990s–will return for a third season sometime this year.
