"Write the TV show you want to see!" I was told that in 2014 when I was doing my MFA in screenwriting, "Canals said in a statement, according to Variety." At the time, we didn't see very many black and Latin characters – which happened to be LGBTQ + – populating screens so I wrote the first draft of a pilot that the "younger me" deserved. "

He continued, “Pose was conceived as a love letter to the underground ballroom community in New York, to my beloved New York, to my queer & trans family, and to myself. I never intended to change the TV landscape with my incredible collaborators. I just wanted to tell an honest story about family, resilience and love. How happy I am to have done this for three seasons.
“I'm very grateful to our intrepid writers, cast, crew, and producers who worked tirelessly to bring Pose to life. You have been humiliated by our loyal audience and are grateful to the ballroom community who trusted us to tell their story, overwhelmed by the critics who hugged us warmly and forever indebted to Ryan Murphy, FX and 20th Television for my life to have changed, ”Canals concluded.
Pose sheds light on the housemothers of New York underground ball culture, which first attracted attention in the late 1980s. The final season will portray the scene in 1994.
