Murphy is set to direct the pilot, which will shoot next month after Murphy and Falchuk wrap production on Glee. FX and the producers are keeping the premise of American Horror Story under wraps, but a breakdown for the pilot lists its main characters as therapist Ben Harmon and his wife Vivien Harmon (Britton).
O’Hare will play Larry, also referred to as “Larry the burn guy”. It is unclear if the “burn” part is metaphorical.
Murphy and Falchuk are executive producing American Horror Story with Dante Di Loreto. The pilot is being eyed for a fall series launch on FX. O’Hare, who co-starred on True Blood last season, has been recurring on CBS’ The Good Wife.
