Taissa Farmiga LA Crime

American Horror Story survivor Taissa Farmiga will be getting her hands dirty this pilot season, copping a major role in ABC’s L.A. Crime, TVLine has confirmed.

Farmiga will play Karen, a wannabe Rolling Stone reporter who is toiling for a paparazzi outfit when she has a brush with a pair of at-large killers.

Described as a character-driven, true-crime procedural that explores sex, politics and popular culture across various noteworthy eras in Los Angeles history, L.A. Crime‘s potential first season focuses on two cops in search of a Bonnie & Clyde-esque serial killing team amidst the rock-and-roll, coke-infused revelry of the 1980s Sunset Strip.

Farmiga joins previously announced cast member Erika Christiansen, who will play Betty, one half of Crime‘s aforementioned serial-killing duo.
