With Ryan Murphy’s anthology series “Feud” approaching the premiere of its first season on FX — where Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford and Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis are set to go at each other’s throats for eight episodes starting this Sunday, March 5 — the network announced it has just greenlighted round two.
The second installment of the series will be “Feud: Charles and Diana,” a battle royal that has received a 10-episode order from the cable net.
Murphy and Jon Robin Baitz will write “Feud: Charles and Diana” and will serve as executive producers on the show. Dede Gardner, Plan B Entertainment and Alexis Martin Woodall are also executive producing the project, which is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios Television for FX.
“Ryan Murphy is the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning writer, producer and director who pioneered the modern anthological limited series with award-winning hit ‘American Horror Story,’ which is now heading into its seventh year and has been ordered through season nine,” FX notes in its announcement. “‘American Crime Story,’ his most recent anthology franchise, debuted in February of 2016 and its first installment, ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,’ won the Emmy and Golden Globe Award for best limited series and it was the highest-rated show in FX history. Previously, Murphy co-created of the award-winning hit musical comedy series ‘Glee’ (Fox) and created the award-winning hit drama ‘Nip/Tuck’ (FX).”
