Now that FX has made a name for itself in the world of dramatic TV with Justified, The Shield, and Rescue Me, as well as comedic TV with Louie, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Archer, it’s time to take on horror with American Horror Story.
Network veteran Ryan Murphy (creator of Nip/Tuck and Glee) is taking to the raunchy cable channel for a bit of the old fashioned bump in the night. Here’s a synopsis for those still in the dark.
American Horror Story revolves around The Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The All Star cast features Dylan McDermott (The Practice) as “Ben Harmon,” a psychiatrist; Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights) as “Vivien Harmon,” Ben’s wife; Taissa Farmiga as “Violet,” the Harmon’s teenage daughter; Jessica Lange (Tootsie, Blue Sky, Grey Gardens) in her first-ever regular series TV role as “Constance,” the Harmon’s neighbor; Evan Peters (One Tree Hill) as “Tate Langdon,” one of Ben’s patients; and Denis O’Hare (The Good Wife) as “Larry Harvey.”
We’ve got a brand new sneak peek of the show, titled “Belly” in which we get a pretty intense cover of “Tainted Love”. Check it out after the jump, like the show on Facebook, and catch it on FX on October 5th.
