Ryan Murphy ‘Poses’ 80s New York Drama For Next Project
King of the anthology drama, Ryan Murphy, is going back to his roots with Pose, a new ongoing drama set in 1980’s New York, it has been revealed.
Murphy, the man behind American Horror Story, American Crime Story, Scream Queens, and most recently, Feud, has decided to go back to a more traditional format for the new drama. Pose is said to set in 1986, and 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.” This, of course, isn’t Murphy’s first ongoing drama, having also created such varied shows as Glee, Nip/Tuck, and Popular.
Pose is being written by Murphy, with his longtime writing partner Brad Falchuk, and a newcomer, discovered by Murphy, called Steven Canals. It’s been commissioned by US network FX, and will be produced along with American Crime Story’s Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson. There is currently no cast announced, but it’s believed to feature mainly new/unknown actors, and will start shooting in October.
Murphy is a busy man, currently juggling 4 season at various stages of production. There are 2 seasons of American Crime Story, based on the Katrina disaster and the Gianni Versace murder; The 7th season of American Horror Story, based around the US Election; And a 2nd season of Feud, based around Charles and Diana.
American Crime Story: Katrina is due to arrive in 2018 on Netflix UK, ironically, delayed due to the inability to get insurance to shoot in New Orleans during hurricane season. American Horror Story Season 7, we’re expecting in Autumn 2017 on Fox UK, and Feud, surprisingly, has yet to find a UK broadcaster. It’s way too early for Pose to have a UK air date, but we’ll let you know when we hear something.
