TV: Meet the ‘American Horror Story’ Dad

Dylan McDermott has been cast in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s FX drama pilot “American Horror Story,” writes THR.

In some first ever plot details, the thriller centers on husband and wife pairing Ben (McDermott) and Vivien Harmon (“Friday Night Lights”‘ Connie Britton) who move from Boston to a haunted San Francisco home in an attempt to rebuild the family after a miscarriage and affair.

Living next door is Constance (Jessica Lange) and her daughter with down syndrome who knows more about the Harmon house than everyone realizes. “True Blood” star Denis O’Hare joins them as Larry the Burn Guy, a former resident of the home, while the part of teen Tate Langdon has yet to be cast.
