Billy Porter Returns to FX With First-Look Deal

Billy Porter is returning to FX in a new capacity.

The Emmy-winning Pose grad and his newly launched Incognegro production company has signed a first-look deal with the cable network for whom he once starred for three seasons on the groundbreaking drama from creator Steven Canals.

Under the pact, Porter will create and develop new content alongside his Incognegro producing partner, D.J. Gugenheim.

The actor, singer, director, composter and playwright most recently worked with Gugenheim on his feature directorial debut, Anything’s Possible for Orion/MGM.

Incognegro is built around Porter’s brand of elevated, forward-thinking, culturally relevant material and intended to showcase his talents and taste across a variety of platforms.


Billy Porter was an incredibly accomplished artist before joining FX’s Pose to deliver the iconic, breakout, award-winning performance that helped define the series as one of the most memorable and groundbreaking in recent TV history. Billy has excelled as a writer, director and so much more — and we are excited to help him produce bold new stories that reflect his vision and unmatched style.
