Connie Britton First Name to Be Cast in American Horror Story

Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are a strange pair. They go from a TV series that pushed the boundaries of a basic cable drama, Nip/Tuck, to a series that made the songs of Journey lyrics to live by for a brand-new audience in Fox’s Glee.

Now their latest television venture again is a change of pace. It’s a drama called American Horror Story. The drama pilot for FX will be produced by 20th Century Fox and be shot after Murphy and Falchuk finish production on this season of Glee.

The premise is still much of a mystery, but going by the character rundown this much is known. The main characters are Ben Harmon, a sensitive therapist, and Vivien Harmon (Britton), his gorgeous wife who is a force to be reckoned with in spite of her vulnerable demeanor.

FX seems to be pretty confidant with the upcoming pilot. FX chief John Landgraf told THR in an interview that American Horror Story will be a ‚Äúreally complicated, interesting psychological horror show … incredibly ambitious.”
