Fresh off of topping the box-office with generating $60.2 million in domestic revenue last weekend, “Straight Outta Compton” has secured a place on the small screen.

Film Title: Straight Outta Compton

TheWrap.com reports that FX Networks has bought the exclusive U.S. commercial television premiere rights to the N.W.A. biopic, which debuted as the fifth-highest August premiere ever. With “Straight Outta Compton” acquired for television by its roster of networks (FX, FXX, FXM and the video-on-demand broadcaster FXNOW), FX Networks continues on an upward path towards a collection of blockbuster movies for viewers.

As a result, the company is regarded as the leading destination for blockbuster features and movies, according to TheWrap, which noted that in 2014, 67% of all of the films that grossed more than $100 million at the box office that year were licensed by FX Networks.

Among the blockbusters FX Networks has secured the exclusive U.S. commercial television premiere rights to so far this year are “Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation,” “Minions,” “Jurassic World” and Furious 7.

In addition, the company has licensed “Trainwreck,” “Spy,” “Pixels,” “Terminator: Genisys,” “Ted 2,” “Pitch Perfect 2,” “Taken 3,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and “Home.”
