‘Atlanta’ Producer Stefani Robinson Signs Overall Deal With FX
Writer and producer on FX’s Emmy-winning & Golden Globe-winning series Atlanta, Stefani Robinson, has signed an exclusive overall production deal with FX Productions, the studio behind the breakout comedy series. Under the agreement, Robinson will develop television series for FX Networks and other outlets.
Atlanta is essentially a show about black life, being black, and overall blackness, and that’s what makes it great because it is a series that is truly “for the culture.” It revolves around the life and times of Earn and his career managing up the up-and-coming Atlanta rapper Paper Boi, who is also his cousin.
“Stefani has emerged as one of the brightest new writers and producers in little more than a year since she first joined the Atlanta team,” said Nick Grad, President of Original Programming, FX Networks. “She wrote or contributed to many unforgettable episodes, helping to make it the breakout comedy of the year. Stefani has continued to grow as an artist and, under this new overall deal, we can’t wait to collaborate with her on future projects.”
In addition to her work on Atlanta, Robinson also is a writer and producer on the upcoming Untitled Marvel’s Deadpool animated series coming to FXX in 2018. She also wrote for FXX’s Man Seeking Woman, and is currently writing the Princeless feature adaptation for Sony and recently sold an idea to Fox Searchlight.
Atlanta will return to FX in 2018!
