Season 1 of Feud will chronicle Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis’ (Susan Sarandon) combative collaboration on the big-screen classic What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, which went on to garner five Oscar nominations.
The cast also includes Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alfred Molina, Stanley Tucci, Judy Davis and Dominic Burgess.
Each season of Feud will explore a different real-life rivalry.
