The stars are headed to FX. Recently, the network announced Evan Peters, Tatiana Maslany, James Van Der Beek, and Kate Mara have all joined their upcoming TV show Pose.
From Ryan Murphy, the drama is set in the 1980s and “looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.”
Peters, Maslany, Van Der Beek, and Mara join previous announced cast members MJ Rodriguez, Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson, Hailie Sahar, Angelica Ross, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Billy Porter, and Dyllon Burnside.

LOS ANGELES, CA October 26, 2017 – Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Emmy Award(R)-winner Tatiana Maslany have joined the cast of Ryan Murphy and FX Network’s POSE, which begins shooting in November in New York City.
Peters (American Horror Story, the X-Men franchise) and Mara (American Horror Story, House of Cards) play New Jersey couple Stan and Patty, who get sucked into the glamour and intrigue of New York City in the 1980s. Van Der Beek (Varsity Blues, Dawson’s Creek, What Would Diplo Do?) plays Peters’s financial kingpin boss Matt. Maslany (Orphan Black, Stronger) plays a modern dance teacher who takes a special interest in the talent of Damon (the previously announced Ryan Jamaal Swain).
Acclaimed choreographer Ryan Heffington (Sia’s “Chandelier” video, The OA) will choreograph Maslany’s and Swain’s dance sequences.
POSE is co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals. Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh serve as additional executive producers of the FX series.
Peters, Mara, Van Der Beek and Maslany round out a cast that includes Tony Award(R) winner Billy Porter and the largest number of transgender actors in television history to have series regular roles. The series examines several aspects of New York City life in the 1980s, including the ballroom scene, and the art and financial boom of the later part of the decade.”
