Ryan Murphy Pose Series FX

Ryan Murphy's 1980s New York-Set Drama Pose in the Works at FX

Another week, another new Ryan Murphy series in production: The American Horror Story auteur’s 1980s drama Pose is underway at FX.

Per our sister site DeadlinePose “examines the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York City.” Set in 1986, the series takes on the rise of Donald Trump-style superwealth, the denizens of downtown (including the literary scene) and the underground LGBT subculture known as ball culture.

A rep for FX had no comment on Pose.

According to Deadline, Murphy will executive-produce the series along with American Crime Story‘s Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson and frequent collaborator Brad Falchuk (Glee, American Horror Story). Murphy, Falchuk and newcomer Stephen Canals will write the series. FX Productions and Fox 21 TV Studios will produce.

The series is interested in casting unfamiliar faces (read: No John Travolta-style big gets or Murphy staples like Sarah Paulson), and the drama is tentatively scheduled to begin airing in 2018.

Pose joins a long list of Murphy series currently on the TV schedule, including FX’s American Horror StoryFEUD and American Crime Story and Fox’s Scream Queens.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    It intrigues me, but the problem with non-anthology RM series is that they fall apart after a season, sometimes even before the first season is finished.

    Pretty Soon FX is going to have to spin off to a network of just the Ryan Murphy shows. Is this supposed to be an anthology or is it a multi-season drama?

    When does Murphy find time to sleep?

    • MMD says:

      I don’t think he does and he has a young 4 year old son at home as well. Some people can exist and thrive on a couple of hours sleep which boggles my mind.

    This guy needs to chill. Spreading himself way to thin. Scream Queens second season was horrible and it’s obvious it got cancelled. AHS Roanoke was not good. Keeping that season a secret was irritating. And let’s not forget the theme of AHS next season. He just needs to focus on one show. Show creators like him are what make good shows go bad. They leave someone else takes over.

    I get my ’80s fix from The Americans. Not sure I’m up to yet another show from this era. (Even the CW, reviving Dynasty, is over the 80s!)

    I wonder if Kiernan Shipka will be in this. She seems as though she could be his new muse.
