A Nightmare on Elm Street and “Friday Night Lights” star Connie Britton has been tapped to star in “American Horror Story,” the top secret FX drama pilot from “Glee”‘s Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.
The ever-busy Murphy is on board to direct the pilot, which is set to begin shooting after he and Falchuk wrap production on “Glee” next month. Britton will play Vivien Harmon, one-half of the show’s central couple.
While details on the project remain sparse, FX chief John Landgraf was particularly enthusiastic about it’s prospects in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week, calling the “really complicated, interesting psychological horror show … incredibly ambitious.”
He went as far as saying, it “could define or redefine the genres that [it’s] in.”
