Last night, FX celebrated the premiere of the original limited series Under the Banner of Heaven with a star-studded red carpet event at the Hollywood Athletic Club.

Under the Banner of Heaven cast and producers on site included Andrew Garfield (“Detective Jeb Pyre”), Sam Worthington (“Ron Lafferty”), Daisy Edgar-Jones (“Brenda Wright Lafferty”), Wyatt Russell (“Dan Lafferty”), Gil Birmingham (“Detective Bill Taba”), Adelaide Clemens (“Rebecca Pyre”), Rory Culkin (“Samuel Lafferty”), Seth Numrich (“Robin Lafferty”), Chloe Pirrie (“Matilda Lafferty”), Sandra Seacat (“Josie Pyre”), Tyner Rushing (“Emma Smith”), Christopher Heyerdahl (“Ammon Lafferty”), Scott Campbell (“Brigham Young”), Andrew Burnap (“Joseph Smith”), Rohan Mead (“Officer Morris”), Dustin Lance Black (Creator/Executive Producer/Writer/Director), Ron Howard (Executive Producer), Anna Culp (Executive Producer), David Mackenzie (Executive Producer/Director Episode 1&2), Gillian Berrie (Executive Producer), Joseph La Corte (Costume Designer), and Renee Reed (Production Designer).

The event kicked off with introductions from FX Chairman John Landgraf and followed with a moving speech from creator and showrunner Dustin Lance Black about his personal upbringing within the LDS faith and how now that we know better, we need to do better.

The celebration, which followed all local COVID protocols, was also attended by Eric Schrier, President of FX Entertainment and Peter Rice, Disney Chairman.

Additional highlights included:

  • Creator/showrunner Dustin Lance Black walked the carpet alongside his husband and Olympic gold medalist Tom Daley.
  • FX partnered with Swisher Productions on the premiere with the overarching goal to bring the beautiful landscapes of the show to life, leaning into the ethereal scenery with pampas and long grasses, moody portraits, and neutral tones.
  • The after-party featured DJ Daisy O’Dell playing dark indie and 80s music.
