Glee co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are bringing their upcoming hour-long thriller, American Horror Story, to FX this fall. The network has ordered 13 episodes and scheduled an October 5 premiere.
The series marks Murphy and Falchuk’s return to FX, the home of their critically acclaimed drama series, Nip/Tuck, during its six-season run.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ryan and Brad back to their original home,” John Landgraf, the president and general manager of FX Networks, tells The Hollywood Reporter.
“They have shown an uncanny ability to bring original series to the air unlike any that have come before, and to reconcile ‘wildly entertaining’ with the ‘creative ambitious.’ Once again, American Horror Story is a wholly unique and original take on its genre with richly-drawn characters.”
American Horror Story stars The Practice’s Dylan McDermott and Friday Night Lights’ Connie Britton as a married couple looking to rebuild their relationship following an affair and miscarriage by relocating from San Francisco to Boston.
Murphy released a statement in which he gushed about the show’s “extraordinary” cast, which consists of McDermott, Britton, Taissa Farmiga (Higher Ground), Denis O’Hare (True Blood), Jessica Lange (Blue Sky), and Evan Peters (One Tree Hill). Alexandra Breckenridge (Life Unexpected) and Frances Conroy (How I Met Your Mother) are attached as guest stars, Entertainment Weekly reports.
