American Horror Story is Murphy's (Nip/Tuck, Glee) and Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk's hour-long, 13-episode subversive modern horror tale. Produced by 20th Television, the duo, along with Dante Di Loreto (Glee), executive produce.

The drama chronicles the lives of Ben and Vivien Harmon (Dylan McDermott, The Practice and Connie Britton, Friday Night Lights) who relocate from Boston to Los Angeles with their daughter in an attempt to put the dark memories of their past behind them. Their new residence in an old mansion hides dark secrets, as do next-door neighbor Constance (Academy Award´┐Ż-winner Jessica Lange), the home's housekeeper, Moira O'Hara (Frances Conroy, Six Feet Under and Alexandra Breckenridge, Life Unexpected), and Larry, a former resident of the estate (Denis O'Hare, True Blood).
