A pair of American Horror Story alums have struck their first Pose.
The new trailer for Ryan Murphy’s upcoming FX drama — which you can watch above — gives us our first look at Evan Peters and Kate Mara in their roles as Stan and Patty, a nice New Jersey couple who get drawn into the wild side of 1980s New York City. We see them enjoying a swanky dinner together at the Rainbow Room… but we also see Stan falling in love with a transgender woman named Angel (Indya Moore), so he’s clearly a bit torn between two very different lives.
Peters and Mara are both familiar with Murphy’s work: Peters has starred in every season of Horror Story, while Mara co-starred in Season 1’s Murder House before shifting to House of Cards.
Pose — debuting Sunday, June 3 at 9/8c — chronicles the rise of the underground LGBT subculture known as “ball” culture against the backdrop of obscene yuppie wealth in the greed-is-good ’80s. In the trailer, a young ballet dancer named Damon (Ryan Jamaal Swain) is sleeping on park benches until he’s given an introduction to the vibrant, colorful ball culture: “Balls are a gathering of people who are not welcome to gather anywhere else,” he’s told.
