FX is doubling down on Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk this TV season. Next month marks the premiere of their American Horror Story: Hotel — the fifth season in the ongoing horror anthology series — while midseason kicks off their brand-new true crime anthology series, American Crime Story, with The People v. OJ Simpson.
Which means FX has no time to waste with promotion. The first American Crime Story teaser has just hit the web, along with a new Lady Gaga-centric American Horror Story: Hotel teaser and a more in-depth featurette. Watch them all after the jump.
First, here’s the American Horror Story: Hotel teaser starring Lady Gaga. The song is Rammstein’s “Du Hast,” and it really looks more like a music video starring Lady Gaga than it does a commercial for a TV drama.
There’s also another teaser featuring no Lady Gaga at all, just some weird imagery meant to reference drug use.
And finally, here’s an American Horror Story: Hotel first-look featurette with actors Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare, Finn Wittrock, Chloë Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Max Greenfield, Cheyenne Jackson, Angela Bassett, and of course, Lady Gaga.
Next, here’s the very first American Crime Story teaser.
While there’s no footage, we get a tiny taste of the performances via audio. John Travolta plays Robert Shapiro, Sarah Paulson (when she’s not shooting up in Hotel) is Marcia Clark, Courtney B. Vance is Johnnie Cochran, and Cuba Gooding Jr. is O.J. Simpson.
American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson additionally stars David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, Selma Blair as Kris Kardashian, Billy Magnussen as Kato Kaelin, Malcolm-Jamal Warner as Al Cowlings, Kenneth Choi as Lance Ito, Nathan Lane as F. Lee Bailey, Connie Britton as Faye Resnick, and many more.
American Horror Story: Hotel debuts October 7. American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson will premiere in early 2016.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
