The Weekly, which premiered on FX in June 2019, won an Overseas Press Club award for its story on two American bicyclists killed by ISIS in central Asia. Its reporting on how a predatory lending scheme had corrupted the taxi industry in New York and elsewhere was part of a body of work that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.
