The AMERICAN HORROR STORY franchise traditionally has a great amount of secrecy pre-premiere, but at the show’s Television Critics Association panel for HOTEL, co-creator Ryan Murphy shared new details about what to expect from the show’s fifth installment.

“It’s set in a hotel…it’s set in Los Angeles, which the first season was as well,” Murphy told reporters. “And what I’ve loved about this season is the hotel is set in Downtown Los Angeles, so we really deal with a lot of the American horrors, which is addiction…and on and on. And we were really inspired by the idea of a hotel; there was a surveillance video that went around two years ago that just showed a girl getting into an elevator in a downtown hotel that is rumored to be haunted, and she was never seen again. So that was around two years ago we started thinking of this idea.”

Additionally, each cast member shared a tidbit about their character… Read more

SCREAM QUEENS — the upcoming Fox series from Ryan Murphy — won’t be launching until the 2015-2016 season, but in honor of Friday the 13th, Fox has released the first teaser.

Comments Off on Fox Boss Kevin Reilly on GLEE’s Final Season

GLEE will be heading into its final season next year, but when the fall Fox schedule was released, the series was MIA. But there is a bright side to waiting a bit for more GLEE: according to what Kevin Reilly, Chairman, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) told reporters on a conference call today, “When it comes back in the second half of the season…[they will] air all their episodes in a row.”

But how many episodes the final season will consist of is slightly up in the air.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN: Ryan Murphy Teases Tonight’s Very Important Episode

Comments Off on AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN: Ryan Murphy Teases Tonight’s Very Important Episode

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN has gotten off to an insane start thus far, but for co-creator, Ryan Murphy, the best is yet to come.

“There’s a lot of great Jessica Lange (Fiona)-Emma Roberts (Madison) scenes [in tonight’s episode, ‘The Replacements’] that I love,” he told reporters when asked about his favorite hour of AHS’ third installment so far. “There’s some amazing, hilarious Kathy [Bates (Madame LaLaurie) scenes] — I love when Kathy Bates is funny. There’s some really funny Kathy Bates stuff.”

That’s not to say the episode is all fun and games.

“But it’s very poignant,” Murphy continued. “And what Jessica does in that episode — she has an amazing, huge, three minute speech in the very last scene — is what the whole season is about and propels it.”

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN airs Wednesdays at 10 PM on FX.

GLEE: Ryan Murphy on How the Show Will Handle Finn’s Death

August 15, 2013 by  
Filed under Glee, Glee Spoilers

Fox boss Kevin Reilly had initially indicated that GLEE would handle series star Cory Monteith’s death by having his on-screen character, Finn, die in a way that touched on real events (Monteith died due to an accidental overdose), GLEE co-creator Ryan Murphy has shared the series won’t be heading in that direction.

“There were a lot of things that we had to decide — how are we going to deal with his death?” Murphy told Deadline in an interview. “At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose — that was something we had considered. But we have decided that we’re not going to have him pass from that. Basically, what we’re doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died. The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, ‘This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.’ That might be weird for some people, but it felt really exploitative to do it any other way.”

Personally, I’m really, really happy the show is going this way. But what do you think?

AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s Lily Rabe: ‘I Can’t Imagine a Dreamier Job’

Filed under #1 featured, American Horror Story

When actors take a role on a television show, that usually means committing to (hopefully) years of playing the same character. But for those who have been a part of FX’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY — which, by its very nature of storytelling, shifts to a brand new tale every season — they get to change up what kind of character they play with every new season.

I spoke with Lily Rabe (who was in the show’s first two seasons and has committed to appearing in the third year) at the PaleyFest Icon about the challenges of working on the show, and what other Ryan Murphy shows she’d like to pop up on…

Comments Off on PaleyFest 2013: Actors From GLEE, THE NEW NORMAL, AMERICAN HORROR STORY, and POPULAR on What They’ve Learned From Working with Ryan Murphy

Between Ryan Murphy’s three current shows (GLEE, AMERICAN HORROR STORY, and THE NEW NORMAL) and the ones that have been off our air for a while (NIP/TUCK and POPULAR), there’s no question that he’s worked with some incredible talent over the years.

At Wednesday night’s PaleyFest kickoff event honoring Murphy with the inaugural Icon Award, many of the stars of his shows came out to show their support. I spoke with GLEE stars Jane Lynch (Sue), Naya Rivera (Santana), and Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), THE NEW NORMAL’s Andrew Rannells (Bryan), NeNe Leakes (Rocky), and Jayson Blair (Clay), AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s Lily Rabe (Sister Mary/Nora), and POPULAR’s Christopher Gorham (Harrison) to find out what they learned from their time working with him…

PaleyFest kicked off its annual festivities a bit differently this year: by presenting Ryan Murphy (GLEE, AMERICAN HORROR STORY, and THE NEW NORMAL, to name his current shows) with the inaugural Icon Award for his achievement in television.

I spoke with Murphy before he received the award about what getting the honor meant to him…

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: Ryan Murphy on ASYLUM and What to Expect in Season 3

Filed under #1 featured, American Horror Story

Another season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY has come to an end. Did things go down the way you expected? (Personally, I would have loved to have seen Lana explain away what happened in her home, but it’s a little more fun to have that out there and let you imagine that media circus.)

AMERICAN HORROR STORY co-creator Ryan Murphy talked with reporters after a screening of the finale to reveal what he knew had to happen this year, how that memorable Sister Jude number came to be, and what he could say about season 3…

THE NEW NORMAL: Ali Adler and John Stamos Preview ‘Gaydar’

Comments Off on THE NEW NORMAL: Ali Adler and John Stamos Preview ‘Gaydar’

John Stamos makes his debut on THE NEW NORMAL in tonight’s brand new episode, he brings a whole new complication to the show — just how reliable is “gaydar”?

“[Tonight’s episode is] about the preconceived notions we have about how someone acts or looks gay, and that the new normal is we really don’t have any clue and neither do our gay people in the show have a fair clue,” THE NEW NORMAL executive producer Ali Adler told reporters during a winter press tour set visit. “We’re all just completely at a loss. Everyone is just who they are and that’s the exploration for next week.”

“Gaydar is about what — that gaydar doesn’t work anymore,” Adler added. “That however we set it to in the ’90s and the ’80s and whatever, it’s just not working anymore in this millennium.  And we can go, ‘He’s a florist; he’s gay.’ Well, those notions are going to hang us ultimately, and I think that’s what we explore with John[‘s character] and [fellow guest star] Mark Consuelos as well.”
