Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson also serve as executive producers alongside fellow executive producers Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh and Erica Kaye. Janet Mock and Our Lady J will also serve as producers. The series is produced by FOX 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
The history-making Pose will feature the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles and the largest recurring LGBTQ cast ever for a scripted television series.
Co-creator Steven Canals has been writing scripts for the series with Our Lady J (Transparent) as well as with transgender rights activist and New York Times best-selling author Janet Mock. The writers have also brought on ball culture consultants Michael Roberson and Twiggy Pucci Garon to help populate the series with people from within the New York ball community, as well as to help develop authentic ball world stories to be featured in the show.
Open the door. Step inside. Have a ball. Pose, FX's new original series from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Steven Canals, premieres this summer.
