'American Horror Story': Ryan Murphy's series picked up by FX
Glee creator Ryan Murphy is getting another series off the ground. No surprise here, but FX is set to pick up his American Horror Story for 13 episodes.
The series follows a husband and wife (Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton) who move their family to San Francisco in an attempt to rebuild their family after a miscarriage and affair — except the house is haunted.
Also in the cast: Taissa Farmiga as their Goth daughter and Jessica Lange as a next-door neighbor with knowledge about the house. Horror has been traditionally very tough to make work on TV… but then again, so have musicals, right?
UPDATE: FX officially announced the project and plans to debut the series in October (taking a cue from AMC’s strategy with The Walking Dead):
