Record Crop of TV Shows in 2022 Will Be the Peak, FX Chief Says

The number of scripted TV series will peak in 2022, according to a prediction from John Landgraf, the chairman of Walt Disney Co.’s FX division, who was behind numerous popular series, including “American Crime Story.”

There were 357 scripted TV series on cable, streaming and broadcast services through June, a 16% increase from the same period in 2021, Landgraf told reporters at the Television Critics Association on Tuesday. He expects that figure to fall next year.
