"I'm a really curious person ... I'd be interested in studies on violence in entertainment and the correlation of violence in real life," FX chief John Landgraf told reporters at the FX winter previews Wednesday. "If we find meaningful correlations, we should act on those correlations."
Landgraf, whose network airs the sometimes brutally violent Sons of Anarchy, was responding to the inevitable questions about violence and responsibility question that has been prevalent at the Television Critics Association tour this month. Although he pointed out that the U.S. and U.K. consume the same violent media (The Walking Dead is the No. 1 cable show in England), violent gun deaths are significantly higher in the States. He theorized that it is differences in the countries' gun-control policies ...

FX reveals fall premiere schedule
His role is...
FX has announced premiere dates for all of its fall shows, with the network's three comedy series — It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League and BrandX with Russell Brand — all bowing on Thursday, Oct. 11.
The Schrute family tree is adding another branch.
Tom Bower (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) is joining the cast of the Dwight-centric Office spinoff The Farm as Dwight's (Rainn Wilson) great-uncle Heinrich Manheim, Deadline reports.
FX is known mostly for its original series, from Sons of Anarchy and Justified to Louie and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. But as much as 80 percent of the cable network's schedule is still devoted to theatrical movies — which is why FX execs have been on a blockbuster buying spree again this summer.
FX has landed the lion's share of this summer's box office No. 1 films, ultimately plopping at least $200 million for movies such as The Avengers, Men in Black 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man. Most recently, FX picked up the rights to last weekend's No. 1 film, The Bourne Legacy.
