EXCLUSIVE: What impact will today's bumper "content partnership" between the BBC and FX Networks have on FX Originals with existing UK licensing agreements? Well, none at all. I'm hearing that all existing licensing deals remain in place and that the focus of the agreement is creating a UK home for FX programming going forward. What that means is that FX original series such as American Horror Story, Legion, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Baskets and You're The Worst are not jumping to the BBC from their current UK homes. American Horror Story, Legion and Baskets are staying put on FOX UK; while Netflix UK retains rights to It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
