An “American Horror Story” is coming to TV.
The FX channel said Monday it has ordered 13 episodes of a new drama it says has “reinvented the horror genre.” The show is from the producers of “Nip/Tuck” and “Glee.”
“American Horror Story” stars Dylan McDermott (“The Practice”) and Connie Britton (“Friday Night Lights”) as a couple who move their family from Boston to Los Angeles to, as FX put it, “reconcile past anguish.”
The drama also features Oscar-winning star Jessica Lange (“Tootsie,” “Blue Sky”) in her first regular TV series role, along with Frances Conroy of “Six Feet Under”
“American Horror Story” was co-created by executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. The drama begins production in Los Angeles next week and is set to premiere on FX in October.
