FX Networks ‘Platform’ from B.J. Novak is now casting in Chicago, Illinois.

FX Networks’ new B.J. Novak series Platform is now filming in Chicago, Illinois. The new series is a half-hour anthological series, written, directed, and executive produced by The Office alum.

The new anthology series will feature a different cast in each self-contained episode and is described as a TV series that “uses the boldest issues of our times as a jumping-off point to tell singular, character-driven stories about the world we live in today.”

FX previously ordered two TV pilots one comedic and one dramatic. The first episode stars  Lucas Hedges, Kaitlyn Dever, O’Shea Jackson Jr., George Wallace, Ed Asner, Brendan Francis Scannell, among others. The second episode stars Jon Bernthal, Boyd Holbrook, Amy Landecker, Beau Bridges, and more.

“We have been admirers of B.J. Novak for a long time,” said Nick Grad, President, Original Programming, FX Entertainment. “We loved his creative twist on the anthology format, and he delivered on two phenomenal episodes. We are looking forward to going into production on the rest of the season and supporting BJ’s ambitious vision for this project.”

B.J. Novak was a writer, executive producer, director and played Ryan Howard on The Office. He recently served as executive producer of The Mindy Project.

“Thrilled, excited, humbled — these are the words in every press release, and I can’t believe how much I actually mean them,” Novak said. “This is my dream show, and FX is the dream place to make it. When I brought it to FX, I wondered if it went too far, and they told me, you can go further. I can’t wait to get started.”
