As part of her production deal with ABC Studios, Regina King is developing and starring in an FX crime drama about a series of child murders that happened in Atlanta nearly 40 years ago.
Ryan Murphy, a man who is hell-bent on commandeering almost all of FX’s original programming, will start production in October on yet another show —Pose, a drama set in New York City in 1986.
Fasten your seat belts, it’s gonna be a bumpy post. The premiere episode of FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan, which chronicles the making of the 1962 camp classic Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, featured, among things, Stanley Tucci (as studio head Jack Warner) spitting out the word “cunt” to describe Bette Davis (Susan…
Ryan Murphy is still working hard at his goal of turning FX into a gayer version of The History Channel, as it’s just been announced that the second season of his anthology series Feud will explore the fraught relationship between Prince Charles and his late wife, Diana.
Donald Glover’s Golden Globe-winning Atlanta, for my money, was the funniest and driest comedy on TV in 2016. It had heart, it probed into its characters’ interiors with uncommon insight, it sprinkled about surreal touches. (“It’s free chicken sandwich day.”) Most of its 10 episodes clocked in around 22 minutes, which…
In its first season, the finale of which aired on Tuesday, Atlanta effectively solidified itself as an offbeat show about black people that dares to experiment in surreality. That subtle tone begins with its all-black writing staff, and their ability to essentially write about us by first writing about themselves.…
Tuesday night’s Atlanta took a trip into the wonderful world of surreality with an episode-long parody of BET, done via the fictional “Black American Network.” As the show went about deconstructing stereotypes and hypocrisies, complete with a ridiculous news debate show and fake commercials aimed at black viewers, it…
As entirely expected, though surprisingly early, FX has renewed its two popular new series Atlanta and Better Things for second seasons after just two weeks on air, thanks to great receptions and ratings.
In the first trailer for the upcoming FX dramedy Atlanta, not much happened. We just saw Donald Glover waking up over and over and over again. In this extended version, people actually talk and have awkward silences.
The best show on television, FX’s The Americans, will get two more seasons before the Philip and Elizabeth Jennings are forced to pack up their sizable collection of unfortunate wigs and eyeglasses.
Though her turn as Faye Resnick on The People vs. O.J. Simpson has sadly come to an end, Connie Britton is still making the rounds promoting Nashville, which is nice and all, but nowhere near as exciting to talk about as Faye.
Louis C.K. is taking another break from Louie. For how long? Shrug, who knows. He’ll be using that time to work on a movie and develop the show Better Together with Pamela Adlon. FX CEO John Landgraf says, “He is anxious to take a break and wants to focus on other things.” Louie also went on hiatus for two years after…
A woman’s been murdered in a Luverne, Minnesota Waffle Hut sometime in the 1970s, and it’s got everyone in the area afraid, confused, excited, vengeful, or all of the above. That’s just about all the plot we’re given in the excellent trailer for the second season of Fargo, but I think it’s all we need.
The official cast photos from American Horror Story: Freak Show are here at last and the only appropriate reaction is 'holy shit.' But 'holy shit' has to be written in the sky in giant neon orange letters. Because holy shit, these characters look really cool.
Show creators announced the official air date of the fourth season of American Horror Story's new chapter Freak Show.
Have you noticed more romantic plots creeping onto your TV screen? And perhaps on shows that are comedic, rather than dramatic? Don't look now, but the rom com is perhaps pulling a Lazarus. It's just that everyone is very, very shy of the term "romantic comedy" after years of stinkers anchored by Matthew McConaughey.
