FX Networks hosts annual upfront event: ‘Fargo’ Season 3 premiere and bowling party in NYC (photos)


In keeping with tradition, FX Networks screened the Season 3 premiere of “Fargo” and hosted a bowling party last night in New York City. FX Networks and FX Productions CEO John Landgraf delivered brief remarks before the screening at SVA Theatre, recounting the network’s high points from the past year and noting that “Fargo” “typifies the power of ad-supported cable television to compete [with], and often surpass, our ad-free competitors.”

The laid-back tone of the evening, which gave media buyers and FX talent a chance to mingle, reflects FX’s “Fearless” tagline and culture, according to Bruce Lefkowitz, Executive Vice President of ad sales at Fox Networks Group. “We’re not afraid to not have that big ballroom presentation, and this gives an opportunity for our customers and our talent to interact in a way that doesn’t happen anywhere else in television.”

The 8th Annual FX All-Star Bowling Party at Lucky Strike Manhattan featured stars from many of FX Networks’ shows, including “Fargo,” “The Americans,” “FEUD: Bette and Joan,” “Archer,” “Legion,” “American Horror Story: Roanoke” and the upcoming “Versace: American Crime Story.”
