New "Legion" Trailer from HUMANITAS Trustee, Noah Hawley, Coming Soon to FX
Talk about going outside the comfort zone for your superhero TV shows. FX has ordered eight episodes of Legion, a series about an unstable young mutant. The extra cool thing about this? Fargo's Noah Hawley is the showrunner. It's also a co-production of FX Productions and Marvel Television. And who says broken fences between major media conglomerates can't be mended?
“We’ve come to expect excellence from Noah Hawley and with Legion he has delivered another major creative achievement,” said FX President of Original Programming Nick Grad in a statement when the series order was announced. “Just as he did in reimagining Fargo, he is bringing an entirely new aesthetic and sensibility to the enormously popular and richly represented X-Men world, The pilot episode is stunning, driven by incredible performances from Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, Rachel Keller and the rest of the cast. We join our producing partners at Marvel in congratulating the creative team for what they’ve accomplished and are as excited as the fans for the premiere of Legion’s first season," said Grad.
