FX Networks CEO John Landgraf: HBO Emmy move “unfair”

FX Networks CEO John Landgraf called foul on HBO entering True Detective in the drama series Emmy category rather than as a mini-series. The day of the FX Upfront, Landgraf laid the blame on a “freewheeling and ambiguous situation,” with shows like FX anthology series American Horror Story and True Detective defined as having “dual eligibility,” where the producer makes the category call. It’s “patently unfair” to actors who sign on for seven years of a series, said Landgraf, to pack the drama series category with A-listers like Matthew McConaughey who aren’t bound to a multi-year contract.
