FX announced Thursday that Ryan Murphy, the architect of the ‘Glee’ phenomenon, is teaming again with fellow creator/executive producer Brad Falchuk for a new drama pilot, ‘American Horror Story.’
The project would pair the duo once more with FX, which aired their other collaboration ‘Nip/Tuck’ for seven seasons.
The pilot will be directed by Murphy and will begin production in April. If FX picks up the series, production would begin in late spring with a debut expected in the fall.
' ‘American Horror Story’ is a project that Brad and I have been discussing for a while,’ Murphy said in a statement. ‘John Landgraf and I have maintained a wonderful relationship since Nip/Tuck ended its run and he gave me an open invitation to develop a new show for the network. FX is the perfect place for this series and we look forward to a great homecoming.’
Could this mean the descent of the ‘Glee’ empire? Breathe. All is good. Or so they say: ‘Fans can rest assured that we haven’t taken our eyes off that ball for a second. We’ve broken the stories for the season’s remaining episodes, and we’ve got big things planned for our little glee club as it strives to make it past Regionals to the all-important Nationals competition in New York City,’ Falchuk said in a statement.
