Glee Creator’ “Horror” TV Show Gets Green Light

Postby DaveC » Tue Jul 19, 2011 5:12 pm

Could be good, Glee is (was if it moves to Sky) my guilty pleasure. :D

FX has given the green light to a 13 episode season of American Horror Story, a new series from Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, who previous showran Nip/Tuck for the cable network.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Ryan and Brad back to their original home,” says FX president John Landgraf on TVLine. “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 ‘creatively ambitious’. This series is going to blow audiences back in their seats, and we can’t wait to have it on our air.”

The premise for American Horror Story, which stars Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights) and Dylan McDermott (The Practice) is a closely guarded secret – FX only describes it as the story of “a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish” and that it “redefines the horror genre”— and it’s not clear whether it will actually be SFX territory, but fingers crossed. What we do know is that McDermott and Britton star as Ben Harmon, a sensitive therapist, and his wife Vivien, who is described as a force to be reckoned with in spite of her vulnerable demeanour. Jessica Lange plays their nosy neighbour, Constance, while Denis O’Hare (True Blood) fills the role of “Larry the burn guy.”

If the series gets further seasons, then the cast is expected to change with each new year.

That's why I didn't like it :(

I did appreciate the idea of casting a girl as Frank N Furter though, if I could sing I'd want to play him.

Also none of them really have strong enough voices for it. They should stick to pop music...

My daughters crew who do a film/floorshow for Rocky Horror every two months or so mix the roles up at times and it works. Though she plays Janet. Next show next weekend I think. They don't need to be able to sing though as its mimed while the movie plays.

That sounds like fun! Though I think I'd end up watching the movie anyway, hard to keep my eyes off of Tim Curry ;)

He was mesmerising in Rocky Horror. Not so much today, though.

Ahahaha, yeah, I know. It's a shame. :C

I'd still hit that though. Ain't gonna lie.

C'mon. Don't beat about the bush. Say what you really think!

:P I always do. I just like his voice okay. It's one of those things if you got the change you'd regret not doing it. Wouldn't actively hunt him down though. :lol:

He does have an awesome voice - before I knew Rocky Horror, he was famous to my brother and I as the hotel guy from Home Alone 2, we used to do impressions of him all the time - 'Have a lovely day. Enjoy your piiiiza!' :lol:
