FX's American Horror Story Will 'Transcend' Viewers' Perception of Horror
FX’s upcoming spookfest American Horror Story may be a creep show of the highest order, but at its core it’s a drama about “marriage and infidelity,” co-creator Ryan Murphy told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills.
That sentiment was echoed by leading lady Connie Britton, who plays one half of the show’s central couple (The Practice‘s Dylan McDermott costars as her husband). READ MORE

Exclusive: NBC's The Event Wooing Connie Britton
Now this is what I would call an event: NBC’s freshman drama The Event — which was recently picked up for a full season despite eroding ratings — is pursuing Emmy-nominated Friday Night Lights star Connie Britton for a major recurring role.
According to sources, producers — one of whom is Britton’s longtime FNL director, Jeffrey Reiner — put a feeler out to the actress to play a senator’s wife. When her husband suddenly dies, the Harvard grad and former powerhouse attorney is given 90 days to prove herself worthy of his seat.
Let there be no doubt that Britton is their first choice for the role, the casting breakdown lists the name of the character in question as “Senator Britton.” Should she bite, this would be the MVP’s first TV gig since wrapping up her five-season stint on FNL last July; the show’s final episodes are currently airing on DirecTV.
