FX wasted no time ordering up 13 episodes of Ryan Murphy’s next original series American Horror Story. The Glee mastermind created the show with fellow Glee mastermind Brad Falchuk. Starring Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, and Jessica Lange, the psychosexual thriller (I’m already on board) “centers on a therapist and his wife who, dealing with the aftermath of the husband’s adultery, move with their kids into a new house that seems to know their fears and plays on them.” Oh God, please don’t tell me Sandra Bernhard is doing stand-up in every room.

FX has been hot on the show ever since Murphy said, “I have an idea.” They even wrote it in big red letters with little hearts on their fall calendar before the pilot was ordered to series, and have now officially set it to premiere October 5. In creating it, Murphy and Falchuk took inspiration from classic 1970s horror movies, including Rosemary’s Baby, Don’t Look Now and The Shining. If the series turns out to be half as awesome as it sounds, we could be in for a nice companion to The Walking Dead. No, not the Sandra Bernhard special. (Deadline)

FX loves themselves some Dylan McDermott. Between once airing repeats of “The Practice” and that crossover episode of “Ally McBeal,” you’d think they’d had their fill, but no. The network has just brought McDermz on as the lead in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk‘s “American Horror Story,” and they’re also in talks to let him develop, write, and maybe star in his own series. I know he’s got that arresting gaze but, geez, ease up on the McDermott, FX Network.

In “American Horror Story,” McDermott stars opposite Connie Britton, her boobs, and Jessica Lange. The plot is being kept under wraps but a pilot breakdown did provide this info about two characters:

Ben Harmon (McDermott), a handsome and masculine but sensitive therapist who loves his family but has hurt his wife, and Vivien Harmon (Britton), his gorgeous wife who is a force to be reckoned with. Lange plays their nosy neighbor, a role that has been beefed-up after her casting.

Masculine but sensitive. Probably uses Brut aftershave and wears turtle-neck sweaters the rest of us can’t pull off. That’s perfect casting. (Deadline)

A Few Details About Ryan Murphy’s Super-Secret ‘American Horror Story’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/a-few-details-about-ryan-murphys-super-secret-american-horror-story/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/a-few-details-about-ryan-murphys-super-secret-american-horror-story/#comments Thu, 24 Feb 2011 13:43:14 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=29536 "Glee's" Ryan Murphy and his "Nip/Tuck" partner Brad Falchuk have been pretty tight-lipped about their new FX pilot "American Horror Story."

Glee‘s” Ryan Murphy and his “Nip/Tuck” partner Brad Falchuk  have been pretty tight-lipped about their new FX pilot “American Horror Story.” There’s been no word on plot or genre. All we’ve had to go on is the cheery and optimistic sounding title. Until now.

Michael Ausiello did some digging and was able to uncover a casting breakdown for the pilot’s four leads. And, thankfully, the Twilight elements are minimal.

  • Ben Harmon | Though as sensitive as a woman, this 40ish therapist is also a man’s man.
  • Vivien Harmon | Ben’s gorgeous wife, she is a force to be reckoned with in spite of her vulnerable demeanor.
  • Violet | The Harmons’ 16-year-old daughter is a Goth with more issues than a Borders magazine rack.
  • Tate Langdon | This 17-year-old is as dangerous as he is seductive. And not “Glee’s Puck dangerous,” either; we’re talking “Charles Manson dangerous.”

Ah. So it seems that the action is centered around the Harmons and their shitty daughter. Still no word if there will be a supernatural element to this show, but it seems that they’re going for a more reality-based drama. One thing is certain, it seems there won’t be any glee clubs on this show. Though seeing a jazz tap routine performed by a “Charles Manson dangerous” type sounds compelling. If that doesn’t work out here, maybe “Dancing With The Stars” can figure out some kind of work-release situation. (TV Line)

Glee creator Ryan Murphy has re-teamed with Brad Falchuk for a new FX pilot, “American Horror Show.” While this marks the second time the team is working with the network (“Nip/Tuck” being the first), this time around, they are being very tight-lipped about the subject matter. In fact, FX has refused to even release info on the show’s plot. As such, they have left us no choice but to come up with our own predictions about the show’s content. Here are nine possible plotlines.

  • A sexy look at the hard-partying life and times of H.P. Lovecraft.
  • A family of East Coast serial killers adapts to life in Midwest suburbia.
  • True-life tales from the guy who gets paid to drain Rosie O’Donnell’s many abscesses.
  • Two plastic surgeons lose their licenses and end up teaching music at a loca high school.
  • Rocky Horror Picture Show fans must come to terms with the fact that the film they love just isn’t that good.
  • A deranged lunatic places toilet cams in an Arby’s restroom at The Mall of America.
  • Writer Frad Balchuk plots the murder of his limelight-hogging writing partner, Mrian Burphy.

Just like in any relationship, FX is crawling back to Ryan Murphy now that he’s with a better looking (higher profile) significant other (network). That metaphor makes significantly less sense than the announcement that Ryan Murphy and his “Nip/Tuck” co-EP Brad Falchuk have sold a pilot to FX. It all seems pretty standard, except that there’s no actual information about the pilot, titled “American Horror Story.” What’s it about? Singing plastic surgeon ghosts? We don’t know. Who’s starring in it? Singing kids in ghost wheelchairs? No idea! We know it’s a pilot, that it’ll be shooting in April, 20th Century Fox TV is producing, and that Murphy, Falchuk and Dante Di Loreto are executive producing. We also know that FX’s President and GM, John Landgraf, is really excited about it, although why wouldn’t he be? Murphy is a cash cow, and has found a way to both develop a new cable property and still have time to run his incredibly successful network show,”Glee,” at the same time. There is only one explanation for his unfaltering productivity: the man is a kitch robot, and if he becomes sentient, we are all doomed. (Deadline)
