This creative partnership evokes the Old Hollywood studio system. FX has ordered yet another TV series from prolific creator Ryan Murphy. The news isn’t yet on the FX press site. Instead of a press release, it was announced in a Deadline exclusive that Murphy’s new drama Pose will begin production in October, with an eye toward a 2018 series premiere.
Unlike Murphy’s American Horror Story, American Crime Story, and Feud (all also on FX), the Pose TV show will not be an anthology series. Instead, it will be an ongoing drama, which he is producing with Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson. Murphy will direct the pilot and is also writing with Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals. Casting has already begun.
Ryan Murphy Sets Pose TV Series at FX
Here is more from Deadline:
Set in 1986, Pose examines the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York City: the emergence of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.
Murphy has begun casting for the show, which is expected to feature largely new and unknown performers.
On Pose, Murphy also is re-teaming with American Crime Story producers Jacobson and Simpson, who have an overall deal at FX Prods. The duo will produce with Murphy, Falchuk and Canals. Sherry Marsh (Vikings) will also serve as a producer on the project, a co-production between FX Prods. and Fox21 TV Studios, the cable arm of 20th Century Fox TV where Murphy is based.
Murphy is in various stages of production on the third and second installments of American Crime Story; Katrina and Versace; he’s pepping the seventh season of American Horror Story and just announced that the second Feud installment will tackle Princess [sic] Charles and Princess Diana. The first installment of American Crime Story, People v. O.J. Simpson, was a runaway ratings and critical success, winning nine Emmy Awards, including best limited series.
