Lisa Harrison and her newly formed Long Con Inc. have signed a first-look producing deal with FX Productions, and she is working with Fargo‘s Noah Hawley on an original drama pilot.
Harrison was an agent at WME for the past 16 years. She will now be developing new TV projects for FX Networks and other outlets. The first project Harrison will develop with FX is The Body, an original drama pilot written by Quinn Shephard. Harrison will executive produce alongside Hawley and John Cameron and their 26 Keys Productions, as well as Shephard.
The Body is billed as a small-town thriller that unravels dark secrets held by a group of female students at the local Catholic high school.
“I am inspired to be collaborating with my friends at FX,” Harrison said. “FX is a great entertainment company, always leading with quality and thoughtfulness. I’m proud that they have included Long Con and me in their plans. I’m looking forward to collaborating with creators at all stages of their careers from various disciplines. I love working with writers, other producers, directors, animators, finding talent, IP, etc.—you never know where the next great project is going to come from.”
“We are thrilled that Lisa is coming back to the production side with FXP,” said Nick Grad, co-president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. “She is an enormously talented television executive with a gift for finding and supporting talent. Her enthusiasm for the business and its artists is infectious and we appreciate this chance to work together under the new deal.”
