The pilot for Legion will be produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.

"Legion is just the sort of ambitious story that Noah excels at," Grad said. "His adaption of Fargo for television was one of the most acclaimed television events in recent memory. It's also an honor to partner with Marvel on Legion and to enlist such an accomplished team of Executive Producers to create this pilot."
