In a recent interview, series creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy says that he and the writing team are considering giving American Horror Story two seasons in 2016, but nothing is set in stone just yet. Read More »

Full Scream Queens Trailer

When the upfront presentation for the new TV shows coming to Fox this fall was unveiled, there was no new trailer for the horror comedy Scream Queens from Glee and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy. Instead, a teaser trailer with actual footage from the show arrived on its own, which means Fox really wants this one to stand out and hopes it’ll be something special. Unfortunately, the full trailer for the series has arrived, and this looks like it’s going to be murder, and not in the way you want from a horror comedy.

John Travolta american crime story

John Travolta‘s had one of those amazing careers where each generation knows him for something different. The youngest kids probably know him mostly for his slip up at the 2014 Oscars. The generation before that, as the guy who made a big comeback in Pulp Fiction. Before that, the musical movie star of classics like Grease and Saturday Night Fever. But it sometimes gets forgotten that Travolta first rose to prominence on TV. He played Vinnie Barbarino on Welcome Back Carter before all of that and, later this year, he returns to that medium for the first time in a long time.

Travolta has just signed to co-star in Ryan Murphy‘s new miniseries, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. The first season will follow the famous murder case with Cuba Gooding Jr. playing Simpson. Travolta will play Robert Shapiro, one of Simpson’s defense lawyers. We’ve got more on the John Travolta American Crime Story news below. Read More »

Showrunner Ryan Murphy has made a name for himself by freaking people out. Whether it’s the twists of American Horror Story, the tension of Nip/Tuck or the singing in Glee, he loves to put something provocative on the screen.

We already knew he was starting a new miniseries called American Crime Story for which each season will be about one specific real-life crime drama from American history. We also knew season one would be about arguably the most famous case in recent memory, titled American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Now we know the players. Cuba Gooding Jr. will play Simpson in the FX miniseries and Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) has been cast as lawyer Marcia Clarke. Read more about the OJ Simpson TV series below. Read More »
