Prior to that, Schrier served as Executive Vice President, FX Productions, and Head of Series Development, during which he developed the critically-acclaimed drama series The Americans and The Bridge. In June 2008 he was named Senior Vice President, Series Development, FX Networks, and Executive Vice President, FX Productions, and was instrumental in developing the Emmy® winning Justified, the drama series Sons of Anarchy and Terriers, as well as overseeing FX’s growth in comedy with the Emmy® winning Louie, and the comedies Archer and The League.
