American Horror Story on FX - Part II

FX Orders Pilot From Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk, Duo Remains Committed To 'Glee'

Before they co-created Fox's Glee, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk were executive producers on FX's Nip/Tuck, which Murphy created. Now the two are returning to the cable channel with American Horror Story, a drama project that was just ordered to pilot. "American Horror Story is a wildly brilliant original series," FX's president and GM John Landgraf said. "Ryan and Brad Falchuk, who created it together, are evil geniuses and, in the spirit of the great Louis Armstrong, ‘Hello, Dolly, well hello, Dolly, it’s so nice to have you back where you belong…’”

Murphy is set to direct the pilot for American Horror Story, whose premise is being kept under wraps. Filming will begin in April after production on Glee wraps. Murphy and Falchuk previously teamed to write the daring FX pilot Pretty/Handsome, starring Joseph Fiennes as a transsexual father, which was also directed by Murphy. FX ultimately passed on it, but it has high hopes for American Horror Story - should it get picked up to series, the network plans to start production in late spring for a fall debut. 20th Century Fox TV, where Murphy and Falchuk are based, is producing, with Murphy, Falchuk and Dante Di Loreto executive producing. Murphy said he and Falchuk had been discussing the idea for American Horror Story for a while. Separately, he had had "an open invitation" from Landgraf to develop a new show for the cable network. "FX is the perfect place for this series and we look forward to a great homecoming,” Murphy said. He was quick to reaffirm his commitment to Glee. “Fans can rest assured that we haven’t taken our eyes off that ball for a second," he said. "We’ve broken the stories for the season’s remaining episodes and we’ve got big things planned for our little glee club as it strives to make it past Regionals to the all-important Nationals competition in New York City.”

Murphy is the second creator of one of FX's signature series to be lured back for an encore. The Shield creator Shawn Ryan was behind off-beat drama Terriers, which had a season-long run last year. This development season, Murphy teamed with former 24 showrunner Howard Gordon for a phobias drama at Fox but the project was pushed due to the duo's full schedules. Murphy has also been very busy on the feature side. He is writing a movie for Julia Roberts and is being courted for several musicals, including Annie with Willow Smith.


Connie Britton To Star In Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk's FX Pilot 'American Horror Story'

Friday Night Lights star Connie Britton has lined up her next TV series project. She is set as the female lead in American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's drama pilot for FX. Murphy is set to direct the pilot, from 20th Century Fox, which will shoot next month, after Murphy and Falchuk wrap production on Glee.

FX and the producers are keeping the premise of American Horror Story under wraps, but a breakdown for the pilot lists its main characters as Ben Harmon, a sensitive therapist, and Vivien Harmon (Britton), his gorgeous wife who is a force to be reckoned with in spite of her vulnerable demeanor. Murphy and Falchuk are executive producing American Horror Story with Dante Di Loreto.

Britton continues to be attached as a producer to another FX project, a David O. Russell drama, now in development. It is unclear whether she would star in that if it comes to fruition.


I can only hope this is as ****ed up and depraved as Nip/Tuck was.
what kind of nudity? sex scenes?

the reason I'm asking is...i wanna watch it later and i have bro, sis and my girlfriend at my place. sis is still not an adult...
There's a couple scenes of bare rear ends and a clothed, but intense sex scene at the very beginning.
I am starting my season marathon tonight
Spoiler TV:
Chapter 4 – “I Am Anne Frank, Pt. 1” (Airs November 7, 10:00 pm e/p) – A new patient claiming to be Anne Frank exposes Arden’s past. Kit learns why Grace was admitted to Briarcliff. Written by Jessica Sharzer; directed by Michael Uppendahl.

Chapter 5 – “I Am Anne Frank, Pt. 2” (Airs November 14, 10:00 pm e/p) – Sister Jude employs a renowned Nazi Hunter to gather evidence against Arden. Kit makes a surprising confession. Bloody Face is unmasked. Written by Brad Falchuck; directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.
Never thought nazis would play into this, sounds like a great season.
I'm enjoying it. Bloody Face is freaky as hell. I'm glad to see that they're going to reveal who he/she is early on. So, Sister Mary is possessed now...that's cool, it makes her character more interesting.

Some really strong performances in this show with solid writing.
Damn. This episode was ****ed up lol. This season is shaping up nicely
Just one episode after she is betrayed, wrongly institutionalized and abused, and everybody hates Lana already. I love this show!
I have a feeling that since the demon will eventually possess the whole asylum.
I'm still struggling to get used to Lange with the East Coast accent, instead of the southern twang.

But aside from that. :up:
I wanna take a bath in this show.

I don't know how else to describe my feelings on it.
Wow, after tonight I hope HORRIBLE things happen to Lana
Yes, because if you see a supposed nutjob accused of brutally murdering several women about to escape from custody... you let them. :dry:

Obviously, from the audience's perspective, she's wrong. But what she did makes sense, even if it does suck.

She immediately discredits what he said without thought, when she is in literally the exact same situation. You don't believe that guy is alright, then explain why anyone would believe her ass. Most hated character this season by far.

Also, Quinto's character rules. He's like a hard boiled noir therapist, or something like that. Only on AHS. :woot:
Never would have thought of Cromwell as such a creepy bastard but holy hell! BY FAR him and Chloe Sevigny are the best additions this year. Until Mcshane shows up of course
