Landgraf Popularized the Term “Peak TV” and Brought Shows Such as “American Horror Story”
Esteemed Hollywood producer John Landgraf, the influential figure behind FX networks and often referred to as the “Mayor of Television” for popularizing the term “Peak TV” and bringing acclaimed shows such as “Atlanta,” and “American Horror Story,”, purchased a Spanish-style Santa Monica home for $10.3 million, Dirt.com reported.
Originally built in the 1920s, the house has undergone extensive remodeling and modernization over the years. It features a striking combination of creamy stucco walls and a terracotta roof, occupying a double corner parcel of meticulously landscaped and securely gated land spanning over one-third of an acre. Inside the residence, the living space is spread across three levels, encompassing over 6,300 square feet. The interior showcases exquisite hand-hewn hardwood floors, lofty wood-beam ceilings, elegant archways, steel-trimmed windows, Venetian plaster walls, and meticulously crafted custom tilework.
Among the notable features of the property is a sunken living room adorned with a fireplace and French doors that lead out to a covered lanai. The lanai itself boasts a drop-down movie screen and surround sound, creating an ideal space for entertainment. A formal dining room connects to the gourmet kitchen, which is equipped with a convenient eat-in island and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances. An adjacent breakfast room is situated next to a walk-in pantry and an office area. Additionally, a spacious family room offers picturesque views of the lush yard through expansive picture windows.
