FX network Senior Vice President Original Programming Eric Schrier at Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Nonfiction section meeting.

FX is one of our favorite networks, they take calculated risks that other cable networks won't or can't tackle. Network president John Landgraf has given Eric a lot of latitude in deciding what to greenlight to pilot from pitch. Rescue Me, 30 Days, The Shield, Nip/Tuck and more all take creative chances that strive to find a new way to tell enduring stories.

After Bob spent a year as an executive story consultant (aka "script weasel") at a top literary agency, he appreciates how much material Eric has to consider, ever mindful that the next great show may come from a direction not even suspected.
