FX will turn podcast hit ‘Welcome to Night Vale’ into a TV show

It’s not hard to see why FX made the move. Popular narrative-driven podcasts like Night Vale frequently have rich stories and large numbers of passionate fans, but they also tend to operate on shoestring budgets even with touring shows involved. TV producers can snap up the rights at a relatively modest cost but still get plenty of quality source material. – Jon Fingas, Engadget http://engt.co/2khf3FN
