A new poster for FX’s American Horror Story popped up on their official Facebook page, featuring a guy in a full-body latex suit creeping on a half-naked pregnant lady – kinda sounds like my weekend! Everything I’ve seen from the show gives off an American Gothic sort of vibe, which was a great, weird – but not Twin Peaks weird – supernatural series that aired on CBS during the mid-nineties and was executive produced by Sam Raimi. I barely watch TV at all, but AHS looks like something I want to work into my weekly schedule. October 5 can’t come soon enough.
Co-created by former “Nip/Tuck” executive producers and current “Glee” co-creators/executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the show “revolves around The Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The All Star cast features Dylan McDermott (The Practice) as “Ben Harmon,” a psychiatrist; Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights) as “Vivien Harmon,” Ben’s wife; Taissa Farmiga as “Violet,” the Harmon’s teenage daughter; Jessica Lange (Tootsie, Blue Sky, Grey Gardens) in her first-ever regular series TV role as “Constance,” the Harmon’s neighbor; Evan Peters (One Tree Hill) plays “Tate Langdon,” one of Ben’s patients; and Denis O’Hare (The Good Wife) as “Larry Harvey.” Guest stars for the series include Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) as the Harmon’s housekeeper; Alexandra Breckenridge (Dirt) as the Harmon’s housekeeper; and Jamie Brewer as Constance’s daughter.”
