Nearly 60% of FX's Writing Staff Are Women or People of Color!

By: Kayla Reyes

It seems like FX Networks is doing a great job in keeping their writing staff diverse. Nearly 60% of the writing staff are female or people of color!

The network started to make changes when a story released in 2015 stating only 12% of FX's directors were women or people of color, making it the worst network offender that season.

Since then, chairman John Landgraf has been working to increase the diversity efforts. In the most recent TV cycle, over half of the directors were women which is a significant increase.

Personally, I feel this is amazing and we need more networks to follow in their footsteps. Its not only important to have diversity on the screen, it is also important behind the screen especially when it comes to shows such as Insecure and Black-ish.

We are here for the diversity! Let us know what you think! Is FX Networks heading in the right direction?
