GLEE’S Ryan Murphy’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY to FX
With Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the brains behind Glee and Nip/Tuck, powering American Horror Story, a series pick-up was almost a sure thing, and TVLine recently revealed that FX has indeed ordered a series for the new pilot.
Aside from a cast that includes Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Taissa Farmiga (Vera’s little sister), True Blood‘s Denis O’Hare, and two-time Oscar winner Jessica Lange, there’s not a whole lot of info on the new FX show, aside from it being about “a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish.”
FX president John Landgraf has mentioned that Murphy and Falchuk show “an uncanny ability to bring original series to the air unlike any that have come before,” and has promised that American Horror Story will “blow audiences back in their seats.”
Aside from ABC’s failed attempt with The Gates and AMC’s excellent Walking Dead series (which recently revealed a wicked clip for Season 2), horror doesn’t have a very strong presence on either the cable or network channels, so a horror story capable of blowing us back in our seats is exactly what the TV-watching audience needs, and a cast of characters that changes every season should keep the show from growing stale.
American Horror Story is expected to premiere its 13-episode first season sometime in October, which coincidentally happens to be a great time for a good horror story to show up.
