“American Horror Story: Coven” could have a partner in crime, at least according to a new article over at the Hollywood Reporter.
Says the site, following a March revelation from co-creator/co-showrunner Ryan Murphy that he was in talks with FX to potentially do a companion series, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf says that there’s a strong chance the plan will come to fruition.
“I’d love to do it,” Landgraf says of the potential talk show. “We’re thinking about it. If we do it I don’t think we’ll necessarily do it the way AMC does as a linear thing. We might do an online thing. We haven’t made a final decision but I think there’s a decent possibility we’re going to do something like that for Coven.”
The executive noted that the network has done a “fair amount of legwork” on the potential companion, adding that it was too early to consider potential hosts for the entry. Also yet to be decided is what level of involvement Murphy would have.
Should the “AHS” companion move forward with Murphy, it would mark his second unscripted foray following “The Glee Project,” which is awaiting a decision on its future at Oxygen.
Hopefully it won’t be something insanely lame like “Talking Dead”.
“American Horror Story: Coven” — starring Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson and new additions Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts and Angela Bassett (among others), premieres in October.
