FX Chairman John Landgraf announced details on a new series called “Platform” at this week’s Disney Investor Day.
Platform, from BJ Novak, an actor and award-winning writer of “The Office,” is a half-hour anthological television series from FX that uses the boldest issues of our times as a jumping-off point to tell singular, character-driven stories about the world we live in today. The series will feature a different cast each episode.
The first episode stars Lucas Hedges, Kaitlyn Dever, O’Shea Jackson Jr., George Wallace, Ed Asner, Brendan Francis Scannell, among others. The second episode stars Jon Bernthal, Boyd Holbrook, Amy Landecker, Beau Bridges, and more.
Novak serves as executive producer and the series is produced by FX Productions.
This series will be coming to Hulu in the United States under the “FX on Hulu” brand and to multiple international markets via Disney+ under its new general entertainment brand, Star.
