Why This Matters!
Not only is American Horror Story a hit in its own right with Burn Notice finishing recently and True Blood starting its final season keeping a quality line up is essential to the channels success.
When American Horror story is coupled with The Walking Dead you can expect a scary line up for FOX in the the coming months.
Fox UK are proud to announce that American Horror Story: Freak Show will premiere in the UK First on FOX. The critically-acclaimed twisted horror anthology from Ryan Murphy is one of the most shocking, innovative and enthralling programmes on TV. The A-list cast that will be appearing in the fourth season include Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy and Evan Peters.
Previous seasons have seen a young family terrorised when they moved into a haunted house in American Horror Story: Murder House. Things took an even darker and more disturbing turn as we travelled back to the 1960s in American Horror Story: Asylum. Set in an insane asylum, danger lurked around every corner - from Nazis and serial killers to mutants and aliens, nobody was safe. More recently, American Horror Story: Coven was set at Miss Robichaux's Academy in New Orlenas, where a coven of young witches battled it out to see who would reign supreme.
American Horror Story: Freak Show is a brand new tale, which is sure to become another horror classic. Set in the late 1950s in Jupiter, Florida, Jessica Lange plays a German ex-patriate who runs one of the last ‘freak shows’ in the United States. The story follows a group of ‘unusuals’ as they will do anything to keep their business running. Filming is due to begin mid-July, and although production are remaining tight-lipped on the exact details, they have revealed a few juicy tidbits to whet our appetites:
· Sarah Paulson is playing Dot and Bette, a conjoined twin with two heads.
· Michael Chiklis is joining the cast and will play a “strong man” who’s married to Angela Bassett’s character
· It features a character called ‘Clown Killer’
· This will be Jessica Lange’s final season
