Since just about everyone has gone and jumped on Ryan Murphy’s telling-of-crimes bandwagon (hello, NBC! we see you, CBS!), the Emmy-winning maker of TV is turning to – whaddya know! – feuds.
Murphy has sold his go-to network, FX, on Feud, a third anthology series that will kick off things with a straight-to-series eight-episode chronicle of the legendary rivalry between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, which became fodder for the ages when they came to together to work on What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? back in the ’60s.
The best part? Murphy has lured Jessica Lange, his American Horror Story star, back to the fold, to play Crawford, and Susan Sarandon will join his troupe of actors, to portray Davis (because she, too, has dem eyes).
Judy Davis, Alfred Molina, and Stanley Tucci are also on board for the first installment, and Brad Pitt is executive producing.
Production has been set for fall, for a 2017 premiere.
