Ryan Murphy Refuses to Sleep, Sets FX ‘80s NYC Drama ‘Pose’
If American Horrors, Crimes and Feuds weren’t enough for Ryan Murphy, we can’t imagine he’ll break much sweat in striking a Pose. The prolific FX showrunner has his eye on a fourth drama set to bow in 2018, this one following the social scenes of 1986 New York.
According to Deadline, Murphy has set the new FX drama to begin production in fall for a 2018 premiere, as produced with Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson. Pose will feature Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Stephen Canals writing the serialized story of ‘80s New York, described thusly:
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.
Sure! The series is expected to feature “largely new and unknown performers,” which Murphy himself will direct in the pilot episode.
For those keeping score, Murphy is also working on a seventh, election-themed season of American Horror Story, Katrina, Versace and Monica Lewinsky seasons of American Crime Story, and a Charles and Diana season of Feud. Stay tuned for more on Pose as production gears up this fall.
