Lisa Harrison Signs First Look Producing Deal With FX Productions

Former Agent and Executive Will Develop New Television Projects For FX Networks and Other Outlets

LOS ANGELES, February 8, 2018 - Lisa Harrison and her newly formed Long Con Inc. have signed a first look producing deal with FX Productions, it was announced today by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions.

For the past 16 years, Harrison was an agent at WME, focusing on TV scripted packaging and developing comedy talent. She was integral in the careers of such longtime clients as John Mulaney, Nick Kroll, Rebel Wilson, Ellie Kemper, Alex Borstein, Julie Plec, Michael Hirst, Julie Klausner, Tracey Wigfield, Molly McNearney, Natasha Lyonne and Corinne Kingsbury.

The first-look deal builds on Harrison's longstanding ties with FX, having worked as a comedy scout and as an executive at 20th Century Fox Television.

"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 Grad. "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."

The first project Harrison will develop with FX is The Body, an original drama pilot written by Quinn Shephard. Harrison will Executive Produce alongside Noah Hawley and John Cameron and their 26 Keys Productions, and Shephard. The Body is a small town thriller that unravels dark secrets held by a group of female students at the local Catholic high school.

Harrison is repped by WME and attorney Patti Felker.
