The FX series, created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Steven Canals, is set in New York City in the ’80s and focuses on the collision of various worlds, including the elite rich and downtown ball culture. Murphy is directing the pilot.

The series will also be mentoring transgender directors through Murphy’s Half Foundation.
