Shih has struck an overall deal with FX Productions and is launching her own production company Diversity Hire Ltd.
She will develop content for FX through the company, which Shih will run with Jen Goyne Blake, who was a founding director of the Episodic Lab at the Sundance Institute, where she met Shih through her project Tilting.
Her first project for FX is a half-hour series, Love Rules, produced by Larry Wilmore, The District, Joanna Coles, and ABC Studios.
Shih is a Los Angeles-based television writer and producer, who spent two years playing poker in Las Vegas before pursuing a degree in playwriting at Cal State Northridge. She has also written on Amazon’s Undone and was involved in USA Network’s aborted Evel Knieval drama starring Milo Ventimiglia.
