Writer-producer Ryan Murphy is in the process of adding another FX series to his repertoire. The mastermind behind “American Horror Story” and “Feud,” is working on the upcoming 1980s drama “Pose” for the cable network, with a 2018 release date on the horizon.
The series centers around New York City during the 1980s, back when the gritty city was covered in graffiti and starting to experience the growing pains of gentrification. Examining the several segments of life and society in Manhattan, “Pose” highlights the cultural touchstones that shaped the city into what it is today, including the rise of Donald Trump – and consequently, Trump Towers – and the bustling social scene that emerged the downtown area.
Murphy is working on “Pose” with writing partner Brad Falchuk (“Glee”) and newbie Steven Canals (“Afuera” and “Dead of Summer”). Casting has already begun for the upcoming series, which is expected to feature largely up-and-coming actors according to Deadline. Production is tentatively scheduled to begin in October with Murphy set to direct the first episode.
Murphy is currently busy with the second and third seasons of anthology series “American Crime Story,” both of which will premiere in 2018. The writer’s latest series “Feud,” will return for a second season, and will center around Princess Diana. If that’s not enough, “American Horror Story” has been renewed for two more seasons.
