In the world of TV, the name Ryan Murphy seems to be everywhere.
Coming off the success of two huge hit series – American Horror Story and American Crime Story – Murphy is back at it again, this time pouring his considerable creative energies into realising the materialistic world of the 1980s.
Set in 1986, Pose will examine several segments of life and society in New York City: the emergence of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene, and the flamboyant world of ball culture.
In a first for a Murphy-helmed project, Pose is expected to have a continuing cast and storylines, a major departure from his signature stand-alone anthology format.
Written by Murphy, longtime collaborator Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, the project has gotten the go-ahead from FX for an October production start in New York.
Whether or not this new production lives up to his previous efforts, anything springing from the mind of Ryan Murphy is going to be worth watching. Chris Prindiville
