Jessica Lange may be done with American Horror Story, but she will return to FX in a new anthology series Feud.
Lange will star as Joan Crawford with Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis in the first season which focuses on the rivalry between the two movie stars while they made the cult classic What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
Eight episodes of Feud have been ordered and it’s set to premiere in 2017. Ryan Murphy, American Horror Story creator, will produce this show along with Brad Pitt.
“Ryan keeps re-inventing TV,” John Landgraf, FX Networks CEO said. “Nip/Tuck brilliantly extended the boundaries of ad supported television. Glee re-imagined the television musical. American Horror Story pioneered the modern anthological series, which has rapidly transformed the television landscape and has been widely copied. The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story was recognized by many as the best and most talked about new show this year. And all of those shows have been award-winning ratings hits.”
Feud will be Murphy’s fourth current project. American Horror Story was recently renewed for a sixth season, Crime Story will follow Hurricane Katrina for its second season and Scream Queens will be set in a hospital for season two.
